This is the shabby rose I will be showing you how to make in this tutorial.
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
Tim Holtz Tattered florals Die* (see note in Extras below) - cut one of each flower,
Paper - I used a mulberry type paper, but cheap copier paper or patterned paper is good too,
Water spray bottle,
Glue - which ever you prefer. PVA, pritt stick, hot glue, silicone - all are fine,
Beads or stamen for the flower centres,
Ink for colouring the flowers - I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks,
Cut n' dry foam or make up sponge **.
EXTRAS YOU MAY LIKE BUT AREN'T A NECESSITY
Heat tool to dry the flowers but this is optional and not a necessity,
You may wish to use glitter to add around the edges or stickles.
You may prefer a button or charm for the centre.
*These flowers are very versatile. If you do not have the Tim Holtz tattered florals, that is perfectly fine. Try it with any flowers, should it be a different die, punched flowers, bought flowers, cut from your cricut or cut by hand it does not matter. As long as you have 4 different sized and shaped flowers, this will work. It will just make a different type of flower but just as effective and beautiful.
**The cut n' dry foam or make up brush are not essential if you do not have these. It is just as easy to take your ink pad and lightly swipe it over the surface of the flowers.
You do not have to stick with ink to colour the flowers either. You can use whichever colour medium you wish. An alternative to spraying them with water, its to glimmer mist them instead. Its up to you, as I said they are very versatile flowers.
|1. Make small cut between petals|
Take your medium flower and make little cuts between each petal down to almost the centre but not quite, just to make the petals a little longer. See photo 1.
|5. Glue each layer on top of each other and add a bead|
|6. Pierce a small hole in the centre to add stamen|
