Making Paper Flower Rosettes

Kyriakos shows us how to get even more use out of the Dutch Doobadoo spiral stencil by using it to make large paper flower rosettes for greeting cards, party decorations and gift boxes. This technique can also be used with fabrics to make flower embellishments for bags, clothes, etc.

Cut the 12x12 paper into 6x6 pieces. Use the stencil and the Camellia inkpad to colour the paper on the reverse side.

Cut the 6x6 piece into a circle (about 15cm diameter).

Using a craft knife cut the spiral curves, keeping the center uncut.

Place a small dot of glue to the edges of the blank curved flaps and fold them into the centre.

Turn and repeat on the other side.

Repeat the first two steps by cutting a small circle (about 3cm smaller in diameter), but this time cut and remove the unpainted swirl flaps. Repeat step 3.

Take the small flower and glue it in the centre of the larger one.

Take an A4 cardstock and fold in half. Distress with the inks.

Cut a piece of the corrugated paper in size a bit smaller than A5 page and and distress the edges. Glue it onto the card front.

Stamp with the script stamp and the Camellia ink on a 6x6 paper cutting.

Glue the 6x6 stamped paper, pieces of corrugated paper and the ribbons into position.

Add the metallic charm to the left side, the jute string and the pearl leaves. Finish by adding the flower. ♥
