From Flat to Flouncy!


Today I've a Bubbly Funk project to share with you
A few weeks ago, I posted a paper rose tutorial and it got me thinking about all those lovely 'flat' mulberry paper petals you can get.  I have a load of lovely ones from Bubbly Funk, they come in packs of the same shape, colour and size and I was interested in finding out whether I could use the  technique as in the tutorial to make some mulberry roses with them.

It turns out it works just fine, though I did need to use an extra set of petals to get a nice 'full' rose

.I chose petals in brown, cream and a lovely bluey-turquoise colour to make the roses.  As mentioned I used an extra flower shape to fill out the rose - to do this I separated the flowers into single petals and trimmed off the inner point from each.  Next I just dipped the now straight end into some glue and tucked them into the rose wherever they seemed to be needed to make a good, full shape.

The basic Rose Tutorial is Here

From the Bubbly Funk shop I used

From my stash; Kraft Card blank, Pearls,
The die cut sentiment is by Spellbinders and comes from

Why not have ago at making some flowers yourself - I bet you've got loads of flat paper petals to practise with, and if you don't, well Bubbly Funk can help you there!

Happy Crafting

Gorgeous card, love the kraft with the blue sentiment and beautiful roses. I have dozens of flowers collected over the years but tend to go for die cutting now. Thank you for the tutorial link I will be having a go.

Good use of those flat flowers Kathy - the 3D effect you've achieved is so much more interesting. Shabneez x
