Finally being able to blog after a hectic week. Ok, as promised, this is how you can make your own Prima flowers. Again, please mind the photos, due to the camera problem (will get it fixed on Monday!).
Prima Tutorial 1
You will need:
1. Paper (any type of paper will do but crepe paper would be much better. I use the coloured A4 paper that can be found in any stationery shop)
2. Embossing tool (other option: a pen that's out of ink, the pointed end of a paint brush etc)
3. Flower punch
4. Mouse pad
Punch paper flowers using the flower punch. You can use flower punch of any design, or you can cut out a flower shape using normal scissors (if you don't have flower punch).
Then, use the embossing tool to draw a curved invisible line as shown in the picture. Make sure you use the mouse pad as the base of this project. The mouse pad is used to give a bit pressure onto the flower.
Repeat the same step to other petals of the flower until it looks like this:
Then flip the flower to the other side and using the embossing tool, press the middle of the flower until the the flower petals pop up.
... like this (blame the camera!):
And you can do as many prima flowers as you want:
p/s: I haven't manage to use these flowers as embellishments for my cards yet. Will show you once its done ok!
