Made this little tote for a gf's birthday in February (yes I know, another birthday!). Not going to say who it is...so she will be somewhat surprised (she reads my blog). I added this flower embellishment that I cased from my gf Jacque. Below is the tutorial for the flower :0).
Here's what you need:
(2) 12"x1¼ piece of dsp, 1¾ circle punch, paper crimper, scallop edge punch, scissors, glue dots, snail, small piece of coordinating cs and button.
Using the scallop edge punch, punch both 12"x1¼" pieces of dsp.
Run both of those pieces through the paper crimper.
Both pieces should look like this:
Punch out a circle from the cs.
Apply snail or other adhesive over entire circle.
Starting from one edge of the crimped paper, start folding to make flower shape:
Attach to the cs circle like this:
Trim and fold over end to look like this:
Put snail or adhesive on center and inner edge of flower:
Start folding the second piece (I flipped my dsp to give it a contrasting look) and attaching it to first flower. You are now forming the second layer of the flower. Repeat the same technique as used for the lower flower.
Trim off edge and fold under using your snail (or adhesive).
Place a glue dot in the center and attach button and there you go:
Hope this tutorial was helpful. Have a great day and aloha!
