Hi everyone! I would usually post a card, however today's post is a little different. Today I am sharing with you how to make flowers that I made for Magnolia DooHickey Club vol.2. These flowers are made with Mulberry paper and Magnolia's DooHickey dies - Peony Petals.
To make flower you will need (per 1 flower): 2 large Peony Petals, 2 small Peony Petals, Mulberry paper, Distress inks, Heat tool, Sponge dauber, Mister filled with water, Adhesive, Pearl or Brads.
Step 1: Die cut mulberry paper using Peony Petals, and colour with Distress inks using a sponge dauber. They colours are a mix with Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.
Step 2: Spray water on the petals with a mister and make the whole petals wet.
Step 3: While the petals are wet, tear the edge of petals with your fingers as shown in the picture.
Step 4: Dry them using your heat tool.
Step 5: Before they dry, form the shape with your fingers or tools as you like, then dry them completely.
Step 6: Assemble 2 large petals and 2 small petals together and glue the centre of petals.
Step 7: Adhere them with a pearl or brads to the centre.
Step 8: To decorate your box, you will need: 1 sash (using DooHickey’s Old Swedish Lace), 3 flowers, 2 tags (using DooHickey’s Tea label Tags and A Joyful Christmas (Text) - Magnolia Winter Wonderland 2013), 3 snowflakes (using DooHickey’s Snowflake Kit), 1 star (using DooHickey's Tea Label Shapes, I heat embossed with gold embossing enamel and gold glass glitter), Tulle lace, Twine, Adhesive, Paper (Magnolia).
Step 9: Tie the tulle lace around your gift box, and put the tags and a sash.
Step 10: Adhere the snowflakes, the star and the flowers on the sash.
You're all done! This flower would be perfect for a gift topper, a hairclip, a corsage, a bouquet or a girly napkin ring etc.
