Thanks for stopping by today! I always look forward to Spring when things begin to turn green and flowers begin to bloom! I created these beautiful flowers, a variation of a flower by Melissa Frances, with Crepe Paper, DecoArt Glamour Dust Glitter Paint and some fabulous buttons from my Zeus and Zoe kit.
Step One: Cut 5 pieces of crepe paper to measure 1-inch x 1.5-inchs, making sure the longer length runs with the lines on the crepe paper. These 5 pieces will form the inner petals of the flower. Cut 7 pieces of crepe paper to measure 1-inch x 2- inches, making sure the longer length runs with the lines on the crepe paper. Using scissors, round the corners on one end of each of the pieces to make a petal shape.
Step Two: Use your thumbnail and a finger to smooth out the crinkled lines on the rounded end of each of the petals.
Step Three: Dip the tip of each rounded petal into DecoArt Glamour Dust Glitter Paint. Let dry.
Step Four: Use the 5 smaller petals to form the inner layer of the flower. Pinch the straight end of each petal to form a teardrop shape. Use hot glue to adhere the petals together.
Step Five: Layer and adhere the 7 larger petals onto the backside of the 5-petal flower you just formed.
Step Six: Glue a button to the center of the flower to finish.
