Prima Tutorial II

Allright. This is the second of 2-parts Prima tutorials.

You will need:

Embossing tool
Scallop punch (since I don't have any scallop punch, I use scallop scissors)
Mouse pad

First, if you have scallop punch, it will make you life a little bit easier hehe. I don't have the punch but I have the scallop scissors. So, to get the intended scallop. I draw a circle onto the paper first.

To get a perfect scallop out of this circle is by cutting it right on the circle line like this:

This way, you will never go wrong with your scallop and your end result would be like this:

You can erase the circle line as you won't need that anymore. If it's too much work for you, then don't coz it won't affect anything anyway hehe. (Just make sure it's a light line made by pencil as the above is thicker for the purpose of this tutorial). Next step, mark the centre of the scallop. You can do this by folding the scallop first.

Using the centre as your target, cut the petals of the flower. Make sure it does not reach the centre or you'll be cutting off your petals all together hehe. You can cut each scallop as the petal or you can skip two scallop point each to have a slight different design.

By using similar technique as shown in Prima Tutorial I, use the embossing tool to draw a curve line on each petal.

Then, crease a bone at the middle of the petal like this:

Do the same step on other flower petals and you will get this result:

Again, flip over the flower onto the other side and emboss the centre of the flower like this:

...And this is the end result. Happy Prima-making!
