Rose Flower tutorial

This tutorial is another mix of things that I have seen on the web, but it dosen't really require anything  more than paper and scissors and can add some distress ink colour if you like too.

So here are all the bits you need, a scrap of paper, scissors, glue and some distress ink which is optional.
Cut out 4 rough circles getting smaller
Make 5 triangular snips into the circles for the petals - dosen't matter how even you are or if one petal is narrower than the other.
To round off the corners just snip them off and this gives you more rounded petal shapes
Ink the edges, for this flower I have used tea dye distress ink, the ones on the LO were using broken china.
Using a cocktail stick curl each of the petals under except for the smallest flower
The smallest flower becomes the bud centre, so you pull the petals up and twist them a little - I use a bit of glue to try and make it stay together
Then add a bend upwards at the base of each of the petals so the flower takes on a basket like shape
Add a dot of glue to the centre of the largest flower and layer up the flowers, off setting them as you go.

Use the cocktail stick to hold the flower together until the glue starts to stick it
I also pull up the petals a little bit more and shape them
You can then add any glitter or rock candy to make dew drops.  Hope you have enjoyed it and please link me in if you have a go at this as I would love to see your creations.

I also have some exciting news as my LO Toastin' that I did based on the color room pallette is one of their featured LOs...really excited.
