Tattered Roses

Tattered flower tutorial

1) Cut 2 large petals and 2 small petals as shown.

2) Ink or spritz pieces if desired.

3) Use paper piercing tool or another smooth, round tool to "curl" the petals of the large flowers down. To do this, hold the base of the petal with non-dominate hand and use the other hand to press the petal between your thumb and the tool. Slide your thumb and tool from the base of the petal to the tip as if you were "curling" ribbon for a package.
Repeat this for each petal on both of the large flower pieces.

4) Next bend each petal up straight up. (about 90 degrees)...

... and then back down again.

The flower pieces should look like this when you are done.

5) Adhere and stack flowers, staggering petals.

6) For small petals, curl up or down depending on the look you want. Stack and adhere in center.

7) Add beads or rhinestones to the center.

This page will be one of the tabbed pages at the top of my blog.

Hereis the cut file.
