FILIGREE FLOWER---A TUTORIAL

HI FRIENDS!!!

I,m Anita here, bringing to you a tutorial on Filigree Flower. Well, I,ve not seen this flower any where and its just got created in my brain as I sat with my new Spellbinder Dies-Les Pappillion. Crafters Corner has in stock all the new spellbinders and that too at very reasonable rates.

So as I stared at this beautiful die of four intricate butterflies, I just thought how nice  a  flower would look with all those intricate petals. And I gathered all the stuff needed and began my experiment.

So lets begin !!!!! We will use spellbinders dies LES PAPPILLION  in a different way.
Before I start with my tutorial, let me tell you that I,m very bad at taking photos and so please bear with my poor pic quality.

 Supplies---patterned paper or any paper of your choice, LES PAPPILIONS, silicone glue, distress inks, scissors, tweezer, pollens
 Using my BIG SHOT--I cut out several cut outs from both the papers. You will require about 4 pieces of both colours.


 Then , I distressed the edges of the die cuts.




Then, cut out the four wings of the butterfly.

 Put a blob of silicone on a 1'' circle paper.

 First arrange the upper wings around the glue. This will be the outer layer.

 Continue building up layers till all the wings have been used.

 Now,, tie a thread around the pollens very close to the head.

 Cut off the pollen head



Put it on the centre of the flower and let it dry.

Use as required.

I have used it on a card. The leaves and head pins are from crafters corner. The store has all the materials for flower making. So do visit us for all your crafty needs.


The challenge 1 is still going on and the theme is celebrate with flowers. So do play along as more you  participate, the prize size will increase.

Do let me know how you like this tutorial. And pls feel free to ask me anything.
