Roses from the Flower Layers Die
You will need to cut 3 out of the second largest flowers. With this die you can cut them all out at the same time.
You will leave one flower whole, cut 1 petal off the other and 2 petals off the last one. You will have one with 4, 3 and 1 petal. Throw away the one with 2 petals. Next you will cut in 1/2 inch between each petal. Now is the time to sponge each petal.
The flower with 3 petals glue together to form a cone. Do the same with the 4 petal flower.
Now you will shape each layer. I curled the top of each petal with a skewer. The one petal you will curl on each side.
Punch a hole (3/8” with the Crop-o-dile)in the whole flower. I then used Tombow Glue to glue each layer together. You will have to hold it a bit until the glue dries. You can also add some Crystal Effects for extra staying power.
My example was made with Kraft card stock. You can't tell by the photo, but I sprayed it with shimmer paint. Even in this color card stock, the rose looks beautiful!
So go and make your own roses now. They are so fun!
