When I first tried out the new Spiral Flower Die from SU! I was not happy with the results. I really didn’t understand the directions that came with the die so I took to the web, especially pinterest, to find out how to create the flowers. After a little bit of research I was able to start creating with confidence….thank goodness for youtube videos!!!!
The two items you need to help you create the flowers is a bone folder and a glue gun. The bone folder helps you break down the fibers of the paper so it becomes more pliable. As I started to get more and more comfortable making them, I just wanted to continue to make more and more. I just love how my first of many flowers to come came out….
Using two flowers together will make them bigger. I used summer starfruit coordinations paper and really liked the results. I sanded the paper after I ran it through the big shot. By sanding the paper, it gave a softness to the flower.
I hope you decide to create spiral flowers and feel a sense of happiness as much as I did. Enjoy!!!
