Spellbinders 'Create-A-Flower' Camellia Tutorial

Hello Blog Friends - the weeks seem to fly by so quickly and the weekends even quicker - do you find it that way - or its it just me! LOL!  It is Sunday evening and I can't think of all I have done this week - or maybe it is a sign of getting older - but we won't go there! LOL!

I thought I would share a quick tutorial using one of the Create-a-Flower Dies Camellia Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites.  Don't you just love how realistic they can look - and believe me, they are not as complicated as you might think to create. 

Spellbinders Products:
Preferred Partners Products:
Other: Black Cardstock; liquid glue; patterned paper

1. Cut the row of three petals nine (9) times using Captivating Coral cardstock and the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
2. Using the Tool'n One and Stylus tip shape each petal.
 Note: it is best to use the Stylus on a foam mat.

3. Starting with the largest petal, glue five to the points on the Disc Floret Base,  Create a second layer with the next four.
4. Repeat using the medium petals followed by the small.

5. Cut/emboss two leaves using Pixie Play cardstock, along with one Disc Floret in green.
6. Adhere the leaves to the underneath of the flower using liquid glue
7. Adhere the Disc Floret over the base of the flower and leaves; using liquid glue.
8. Adhere to project as desired

Designer Tip: The leaves can be curved inwards to form a bud or partially open flower or curved outwards, leaving a few petals on the inside forward to create a more realistic flower.
