Flower tutorial

So many of my scrapping friends have asked me how I made the flowers I used on my "Beautiful" LO and "Friend" card, and I have promised you a tutorial.
Yes I know I'm slow sometimes but here it is finally...

Fold your paper and cut your flower petals as shown in picture 1&2. This will give you 6 petals. (Making this flower I only used 5)
Use your edge scraper around the edges and then ink your petals (picture3)
Fold all your petals as shown in picture 4

You now have 5(or 6) petals ready to be sewn together. Punch 3 round punch outs for the middle of the flower. I have (2) 1/2 inch and one 1 inch. use edge scraper and ink on the circles. Also cut some small lines in to the larger punch-out.
Sew the flower petals together overlapping each other barely (picture 7). Sew circles on top . On this one I have also sewn a bead in the middle.

When the flower is all sewn together, use a semi hard brush to paint on any glossy accents on the flower. Use the bristles to push circle punch-outs up and toward the middle. When done painting and while the glossy accents is still wet, push and crumble the flower petals lightly towards the middle.

Let flower dry and it is ready to be used on a page or card =)
