Vellum Flower Tutorial

Today is National Scrapbooking Day, great day here to scrap as its raining outside! Might even find some time to do a little blog hopping too, love seeing what everyone else has been up to but first I thought I might share a very quick Vellum flower tutorial. I am not the first to do this kind of tutorial but I just want to share my take on how quick and easy it is to make a flower embellishment either out of Vellum or paper to suit your scrapping project be it a card, layout of OTP :)

What you will need:

EK Success Large Retro punch
EK Success Medium Retro punch
Papercraft scissors 'Cupid's Bow' Jumbo size
Ink (any colour)
skewer or pencil

punch out three of each size Retro flower
(you can use any 5 or 6 petal flower)

using your scissors cut your larger petals (optional) this gives a more floral appearance to your flowers!

Ink all the edges of both small and larger petals, then bend all larger flower petals upwards and towards the middle to help form a flower, taking your skewer (or tip of a paintbrush) roll the petal tips then layer these together. Cupping them alternately staggered.

With the three smaller punched flowers fold one the same as the larger ones and roll tip of petals, the remaining two flowers fold petals lengthwise, this will help when you pinch to form the centre. Adding a tiny amount of glue fold and pinch smaller flower into a bud, layering the two together. Lastly add the third punched flower. Now join all together and you have a pretty Vellum flower!

Add some Stickles or Kindyglitz for a nice finishing touch.

Hope you find this tutorial helpful and I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
