Right - enough of the waffle!!! Some weeks ago I showed the paper gerberas that I am making and I had several comments asking how I made them. I promised to show you and have finally got around to it! I hope it has been worth the wait.
Die cutting machine
Sizzix / Stampin' Up Daisies #2 die
How to Create the gerberas:
Firstly, you will need to die cut 6 large and 4 small daisies from your chosen coloured card stock
Next, you will need to shape your daisies. To do this I just held them in one hand and pulled the petals forward to give them dimension.
Once layered you should have two flowers that look like this
Now you just need to glue the small flower onto the large flower
For the flower centre I used the die cut circle that came from the centre of the large daisy and embossed it using a lav coloured embossing powder
(If you didn't want to emboss the centre you could replace this with a brad)
I then glued this onto the flower and this completed the gerbera
Before I use it on my projects I will just 'fluff' the petals up more to give it more dimension.
Hope you like the tutorial.
You can order the daisies die through me by emailing here for details.
Thanks for looking.
