I'm hosting InStyle's Method Monday today

I'm doing a tutorial over at InStyle's blog for Method Monday! Since this week is all about Hawaii at InStyle Stamps blog, I thought we could create some bright and cheery flowers for our projects!

I've had so much fun that I made a few different flowers so check out this flower tutorial and then go over to InStyle's blog to see the other flower.
Supplies are:
  • White paper (not shown)
  • Flower punch
  • Twine (corded with at least three strands)
  • Stylus
  • Paper Piercing Tool and pad
  • Matching marker and ink pad
  • Sponges
  • Glitter

Step 1: Apply liquid glue to one end of the strand of twine.

Step 2: Apply glitter to the glue. Make sure to get all sides of the dab of glue. Place it in a tall glass to dry. Repeat this for as many flowers as you are going to make.

Step 3: Punch out flower shape from white cardstock. Attach to sticky note and punch out a second time to double the petals. The sticky note acts as a handle to position the punched flower.

Step 4: Cut between petals about 2/3 towards the center.

Step 5: Sponge the edges.

Step 6: Sponge the center with a cotton swab and dot with a marker.

Step 7: Flip the flower over onto a piercing pad and rub the flower in a circular motion from the center to the outside.

Step 8: Turn over and with a small stylus or bone folder, press the center down to *pop* the petals up.

Step 9: Pierce a hole in the center just large enough for the twine to go through.

Step 10: Thread twine through the front of the flower.

Step 11: Glue together.

You're done! Now create as many as you want for a card, frame, bouquet or even a lei!
