Carnation Creations - Friday Tutorial

 Carnation Creation

Today, I am going to teach you how to make these gorgeous  handmade flowers.     
These are made using the Spellbinders Carnation Creation Die,
but you could use any flower punch or die cut.
You need a 6x12 piece of cardstock and a 6x12 piece of doublesided patterned paper that co-ordinates with your cardstock.
You need to cut 4-5 of each shape for a fuller carnation.
 Layer them in size order and secure with a brad. 

 Spray water on the top layer of papers                

Then scrunch those papers upwards 


Squirt some more, scrunch some more….


Continue until the whole flower is scrunched.   Play a little with the “petals” until you’re happy with how it looks    .   
Set aside to dry.  

Once it’s dry, spray some glimmermist to give it a little sparkle, and then  attach it to your card, layout or project.
The beauty of these (apart from being super easy and super cute…), is that you can make them co-ordinate with your page/project  perfectly!
Have fun…can’t wait to see your combinations.
