Paper Primrose Tutorial

Here is tutorial for a paper flower. Sorry for the image quality, I was in a low lighting setting when making these flowers. The flowers are really easy to make and I was able to make one in less than 15 minutes.

Items you will need
A large flower punch or a die cut machine (I used the Cricut)
A small flower punch or a die cut machine
A leaf punch of a die cut machine
Ink ( I used Colorbox )
Adhesive/glue (I used Tacky Glue)
A wook skewer stick or quilling tool
Water in a spray bottle
Flower center and floral spray

Step 1:

Punch 2 flowers from the large punch and 3 from the small punch. Spritz the flowers with water. Be careful not to over wet the punched flowers.

Step 2:

Ink the flower edges. Next using the wood skewer, curl/roll the edges of each flower petal inward. You can also crumble the flower slightly to give it texture before you curl the petals. Let all the flowers dry before moving to the next step. This
will only take a few minutes.

Step 3:

Glue one flower layer over the other, staggering the petals.

Step 4:

Ink the floral sprays. Fold each spray in half and glue to flower center. Make sure you glue the sprays in a circular design around the flower center.

Step 5:

Glue a flower center over the attached floral sprays or you could use a brad.

Step 6:

Punch or die cut four leaves.

Step 7:

Ink the leaves edges.

Step 8:

Fold the leaves in half. Make sure the leaves have a sharp fold.

Step 9:

Using the wood skewer, roll the leaves tightly around the skewer.

Step 10:

Slightly fold back the leaves the opposite way of the curling.

Step 11:

Glue 2 leaves together at the base staggering slightly.
Glue the leaf clusters to the underside of the flower.

Step: 12:
The flower is completed:
