Supplies needed are here. Just a couple of points here; I used both sizes of punched circles on the card above but for this tutorial I have used the 1+3/8", you can of course use either or both sizes. Also I would highly recommend using Tombow Glue as it dries quickly and very firmly, much faster than ordinary PVA, which is a real bonus! more on that later...
Next you need to cut a very basic spiral as shown, Top Tip here is don't be tempted to make a really narrow spiral, it is too hard to roll and hold and also make your flowers too flat,
Next, start rolling from the outside point,
Add a large dollop of glue to the flatish piece at the bottom,
Now, HOLD, for a good while ;-) perhaps 2 or 3 mins so the middle sticks well to the bottom. If you read yesterday's post this is why it took me far longer than it should have as I was making a few of these I kept letting go too early and they would spring up when I looked away! he he!
So, once the centre is stuck I would recommend leaving them sat under something heavy (like a punch) for a few more minutes, they are very sturdy so won't buckle under the weight, don't worry,
And that's it!
Of course you can always add the little Platinum shimmer paint to the rose to finish using a sponge dauber, Tip I get my paint from out the lid once I shake the bottle,
All supplies used here are Stampin' Up!
If you would like to order anything or you wold like me to come and demonstrate this technique (or any other) to you and your friends then please email me for details.
I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial and many thanks to you all for stopping by today,
