I wanted to take a moment to apologize to anyone who may have sent me an email and I have not responded. I’m not ignoring you, I promise. There is a chance I never received your email as my account has experienced “technical difficulties” as several of you advised having received a ‘bounce back’ message when sending me emails. If you would like to contact me, please direct your emails to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am always excited to read your emails, whether it’s for encouragement, design advise or instructions for a craft. The following tutorial request is from Susan, who wanted to know how to make this flower.
1. Cut petal shapes in three different sizes; for this particular craft, I used 6 large, 6 medium and 3 small.
2. Spray with starch and iron (this will make the fabric more rigid and easier to work with)
3. Cut a small slit at the bottom of the petal as shown
4. Apply hot glue to one side
5 & 6. Overlap forming a bowl like shape and continue to do this to all petals
7. Take two of the smallest petals and glue together to form a funnel shape
8. Take one of the smallest petal roll and glue as shown
9. Insert the single petal into the funnel shaped petal
Take your set of large petals and glue them one by one, overlapping in a circle to form a ‘bowl’
The middle picture shows you what the bottoms looks like. Take the medium size petals and form a ‘bowl’.
The Third picture shows you the large petals glued together, the medium and the smallest petals ready to be assembled.
I originally created this flower to accessorize a gift, but can you imagine several glued onto a wreath? Perfect for Spring.
I hope this tutorial was helpful and encourage you to contact me should you have any questions about this, or any other tutorial I have done or you would like to see.
I’ll be back later this week with a couple of Spring projects that will hopefully inspire you.
ps. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kristin from Homespun with love, who was kind enough to do a feature of Craftberry Bush on her beautiful blog.
pps. In addition, my newest friend Barb from Hodge Podge is doing her part to give Canadian bloggers a voice and recently featured a Q&A with Craftberry Bush.
Thank you both so much – I am both grateful and humbled.
