How have you all been? I took a crafting break to spend time with my family, always a wonderful time seeing them.
Today I'm sharing my card and a tutorial on how to make carnation flowers with tissue paper. It's basically the same technique used on my previous tissue paper tutorial, hopefully you'll find it easy to follow.
Would you like to learn how to make these pretty carnations? Please continue reading and follow my step-by-step tutorial ... it's easy and fun!
|Materials: tissue paper, tattered flower garden die, distress stain, marker, white glue, foam sheet, tweezer, bone fold, and a brush.|
|After cutting out your flower shape, wet the edge with water. I'm using distress stain for a little bit of color.|
|While the flower edge is still wet, take the tip of a marker and go around once again. This will give a darker flower edge like the carnation flower.|
|Let the flower dry then separate each flower. You will need 5 flowers for each carnation.|
|Take your bone fold tool and give it some texture by running the tip of the tool from the outer to the center of the flower.|
|This is what each flower should look like ...|
|... now fold the flower in half ...|
|... fold once again ...|
|... then give a pinch to the pointed bottom. This will make the flower more dimensional. |
You will need to make two of these.
|3 open flowers and 2 closed flowers|
|Add glue and assemble the flowers together.|
|3 open flowers glued together.|
|Add the last 2 closed flowers to the center of the carnation.|
|and your carnation flower is complete.|
Thanks for reading, I hope you find this post helpful. Have a wonderful day.
