I'm here with the tutorial for that little flower I made in my previous post. I think it looks like a carnation, so we'll go with that! They're pretty easy to make. I used the Sizzix Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz for the outer petals and the center is a fringed strip.
I used the same weight cardstock I use to make my cards for these, so they're pretty sturdy! I was going to do a photo tutorial but I thought it might be easier to demonstrate in a video. GASP. I've never made a video before but I really wanted to try.
So I spent today figuring it out! It's harder than I thought, the shooting part!! So my video is made up of clips, joined together! I played around with iMovie a bit so I think it all flows fairly smoothly although when I exported it, the text at the beginning and end went a little blurry but I think we can get over that!
Just in case you're wondering the finished size of these flowers is 1 3/4" or 45mm wide. I can't wait to play with these more! I was going to add music instead of me talking (I can't stand to hear my own voice) but then I thought I prefer looking at videos with people talking rather than music so I decided to be brave! Ok here's the video. Sorry about the lighting etc. Go easy on me! I tried! : )
