Creating dating sites tutorial
Think of the shapes as little church windows or arches. For each flower you will need at least 4 of each size. Roll the edges of each petal, and pinch the base slightly.
Each one can be done a little differently to give the petals character and roundness. Use a single dot of glue, about ¼ inch from the bottom of the petal to attach it to the stem. Continue adding small petals, rotating the stem as you go, always slightly overlapping the last petal you attached.
Jessica on Feb 28, 2012 I want to make one of these and use it for my hair!! Bend the wire to make a flat spiral and then glue on a hair clip.... Would look super cute to have them look antique-y!!!! Gloria on Mar 9, 2012 I did this and I wanted to die it a red tone.
I cut freehand, and avoid templates, so that each petal is a unique and organic shape. I really feel that this is the most important step to create natural and soft looking flowers.
Slightly disturbing..) Heather on Aug 5, 2011 I actually made my bridesmaid bouquets out of newspaper and my bouquet out of brown paper bags :) There is an easier way to make the petals by just cutting them all together rather than using so much glue on each individual petal. If it turns out half as beautiful as these look it'll be my rehearsal bouquet and then a toss bouquet. I took sheet music of our favorite jazz songs, and also the love letters that my fiance has written to me to make my bouquet.
Email me if you need a tutorial-I found it on youtube! Mimzy Wimzy on Sep 24, 2011 I absolutely love these. I have them pinned and constantly find myself going back to look at them. I added in dried roses, the first roses he gave me when we started dating, along with babys breath and leaves and tulle, and it couldn't be more perfect! Zak on Feb 14, 2012 Just made these last night for my wife for Valentine's day, and they are beautiful.
I didn't have any of the wire so I just cut up a few clothes hangers and used that instead. I have my first rose sitting in a glass bottle on my windowsill and I'm about to make a second. Thinking of using this for my highschool art class final project, one of the options is to make something from an old book!
Liz on May 29, 2012 This is an amazing tutorial, I made a verion of these for my brother and sister in law 's funeral for their twin baby girls they lost this year. I'm so glad I went this route instead of going with real flowers, haha. here's what I came up with: on Jun 24, 2012 Just had my first go at these, harder than I thought!
