Time for a new flower tutorial. I got the inspiration from Prima's Camelot Flowers. I used the small and large Retro punch for these flowers.
Large Retro punch or 5-6 petal punch
Small Retro punch or 5-6 petal punch
leaf punch in proportion to your flowrs
Thin handle paintbrush or wood skewer stick
Adhesive of your choice
water spray bottleJuly 20, 2010 at 12:26 am #24209
Punch 2-3 flowers from the large punch and give them a quick spritz of water. do not soak.July 20, 2010 at 12:28 am #24208
Using the thin handle of the paintbrush, curl the edges of one side of the petals. You can also scrunch the flower slightly to give it texture before you curl the petals. Let dry.July 20, 2010 at 12:29 am #24210
Glue one flower layer over the other, staggering the petals.

Using the tiny rose tutorial make a small rose for the middle of the flower. I used 2 flower layers for the tight middle, and 2 more layers for the outside curled petals.July 20, 2010 at 12:35 am #24211
Your small rose should fit nice and snug in the larger flower.

Glue your rose onto your flower layers.July 20, 2010 at 12:39 am #24214
Punch out or hand cut 4 leaves for each flower.July 20, 2010 at 12:39 am #24215July 20, 2010 at 12:40 am #24216
Fold and sharply crease the leaves right sides together.July 20, 2010 at 12:41 am #24217
Using your skewer or paintbrush handle, roll your leaves around it tightly.July 20, 2010 at 12:43 am #24218
Now fold back the leaves the opposite way and pinch the underside (wrong) side at the top part of the leave to give it dimension.July 20, 2010 at 12:44 am #24219
Glue 2 leaves together at the base staggering slightly.July 20, 2010 at 12:46 am #24220
Glue the leaf clusters to the underside of the flower in any way you like. I did opposite ends in this tute. Make sure you like how much is showing on the right side of the flower.
