This is my first tutorial ever so keep that in mind hehe. I have had so many ask how to make these flowers I wanted to put this together to show you! Hope it's helpful!
Rubber foam mat 1/4" thick
Martha Stewart punches-
1. large hydrangea
2. medium/small hydrangea
tiny sticky dots adhesive
metal stylus large and medium ball
good quality card stock
(stylus' are found in stencil section of craft stores)
1. Punch out the large and the small/medium hydrangeas. You can certainly choose a variety of colors. The thicker quality card stock works best.
2. You will first use the large and medium flowers and the large ball stylus. The black lines are just to show you where to use the stylus...do NOT draw these on your flowers. The base flower (far left) you just want a little curve so it's not flat. The other two you want significantly more to get a nice curve to each petal.
3.Repeat this with the smallest flower and medium ball stylus.
4. You should have 4 flowers that look like this (without the black lines).
5. Using a tiny sticky dot in between each layer, stagger the petals so they alternate directions from large, large, medium and small on top. You can certainly add more layers if you choose! It's also fun to make smaller versions.
6. This is how the finished flower looks. I like to add a sticky gem, pearl, or beads to the center.
These flowers are super easy and so versatile to match any color combination! I hope this tutorial inspires you to create your own. Feel free to use my link!
