Yep, I love flowers. I love flowers in my house, I love flowers in my garden, and I love flowers on my paper crafting projects. I have been using and collecting flowers since those first bottles of Prima's Got Flowers hit the shelves at my local scrapbook store.
The flowers have changed a lot since those first bottles of flat flowers came out. But they still make them. And you can find them in the store as e-line flowers. These are great fun, and can be used in so many different ways.
For this project, I decided I needed a small, more dimensional flower. I had some flowers that were about the right size, but didn't really have the depth I was looking for. So, I thought of some tutorials I have seen lately. Lots of people making roses from 5 petal flowers. Well, I have tons of 5 petal flowers all lined up on my shelf.
Here are the things I used; pink got flowers, glue, scissors and some yellow stickles (also in the store).
It only took 2 flowers to create this new flower. All I did was cut one of the petals off one of the flowers.
I then glued the open edges back together. This created more of a bowl shape to my flower.
You can really see the dimension now.
I then took the small petal I had cut earlier and glued its edges together as well.
I glued the three petal flower to the uncut flower.
and then added the single petal.
Finally I dropped in some stickles.
After making a handful of these lovely little roses
I made this.....
I loved the extra added dimension these flowers added to my floral spray. I used a Cerise Fluttervine, some Bittles, and an orange Medici, all from Prima, as well. I snuck in a bit of the Prima packaging as a photo mat and placed it all on a paper from the Paradise City line.
I hope you have fun playing with your e-line and got flowers.
