I have had so many questions about my Nestie flower, that I thought I should illustrate it further because it really does make a great embellishment, and matching your flower and papers is easier and cheaper too! Then you will save your pennies to buy more nesties! Clever, eh!
You will need:
Patterned paper - I like to use handmade paper because it's stronger, and you can emboss, curl, manhandle and it just looks better for it.
Nesties Petite scalloped Circles in 3 different sizes (or 3 hand cut circles, or 3 made with any other method you have at hand)
Cuttlebug folder: I like the Textile folder for this
Ink for edging petals
Flower centre - I used a pearl brad
Sissors and, of course, your Cuttlebug
If you would like to make the complete card you will also need
A4 sheet of cardstock folded in half and shaped as this templete
To make the flower
Cut 3 circles
Cut into embossed circle and re-shape edges of the petals. Curl, ink and fasten together with brad. (With the petite scallop circle, cut between the 4th and 5th scallop, then rounded the edges. If using the large scallop you will need to adjust. )
Your finished flower
When attached to card you have a very striking embellishment
I hope you'll find this flower tutorial interesting. I have to admit that I'm a true BUG fan, and love sharing ideas with others, you'll find more of my work and tutorials on my blog ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard.
