On a string - 'Hearts, Flowers 'n' Candi'
A four piece wall hanging using the 'love me do chipboard hearts' that I have designed - these hearts have sooooo many uses and I will be showcasing various gorgeous makes over the next few weeks x (...and you'll adore the new shaped card that goes with this set that will be coming out shortly - VALENTINES day and MOTHERS day sorted.....I promise you....)
As promised - a mini tutorial (mainly piccy's!!!)
To create one of the gorgeous Tattered flowers you will need...
|I use 3 of the die-cut tattered flowers to create 1 bloom.|
|Curl the petals of 2 of the die-cut flowers around the pokey tool.|
|Pop a little glue in the base of the shallowest 'sump' flower and adhere flowers together.|
|Now take your 3rd die-cut flower and cut into 6 'triangular' petals.|
|With 4 of the petals using a pokey tool I curl round the top 'widest' edges. The bottom point I fold up to form a flap.|
|The remaining 2 petals are curled tightly around the pokey tool - (used for the flower centres)|
|So... to finish 'building' your flower pop a little 3d glue into the centre.|
|Now carefully place the 4 'larger' curled petals into the 3D glue|
(centre 'pointed flap' of the curled petal sits into the glue)
|Again add a little more glue in the centre of your flower.|
|Add the final 2 tightly curled petals.|
|Have a little play and fiddle round with your flower before it dries till you are happy with the shape of your flower.|
|Now you can spritv 'n' glitz. I gave my blooms 2 coats of varnish and glitter.|
|The end result when dried - A SPARKLISCIOUS bloom.|
You need 10 'sparkliscious' tattered blooms (8 large 2 medium) to sit on the large Love Me Do chipboard shape. Then you can create a wreath full of gorjossity X
Hope you have enjoyed the mini tute again ( piccys 'n' a few words lol)
Have a lovely Christmas everyone
(I know I will cos there's soooo much extra crafting time and great TV to watch whilst creating)YeY!!!
