Scrappy Angie's: Make your own 3D flowers

Hi. It's Angeline again. As promised, I have a fun tutorial today.

Chinese New Year is coming and I thought I'd make some customized cards of my own! Impress your relatives with these beautiful 3D flowers :) 

Of coz, you can use these on other kinds of cards too. Let's see the step by step on how to do it!


1. Punch a couple of flowers out using a puncher or a die cut machine. Here I am using 6 pieces.

2. Use a stylus or paint brush and fold the petals gently into half to create a crease.

3. Then use a stylus with a ball head and do the "cupping" technique. That's just simply by drawing a circle around the inner petals. This will make the flower 3D. Remember to use a foam mat or a mouse pad as your "mat" else this will not work.

4. Layer each petal on each other by alternating the petals. You can use hot glue or any adhesive here. I used hot glue so use your stylus to hold it down to avoid burning your fingers.

5. Finish it off with a bling, a brad or a button in the middle. 

Wa-la!! Your very own 3D flowers. Perfect for any season.

Here's the card I made for Chinese New Year. I added some ladybugs too. :) You can make this for a gift box, a hamper or just about anything!

Take a closer look at the card on my blog or my FB page.

Happy crafting! :)

Supplies used:
Mouse pad
Hot glue
Ladybug wood decor
