Mini Spiral Flowers Tutorial

The Impression Obsession Spiral Flowers set has become one of my favorite go to dies when I want to use small flowers on a project. I have to admit that at first I was a little intimidated by such  tiny die cuts but I quickly found they rolled up on the tip of my tweezers just like the larger rolled flowers.

 

Impression Obsession Dies, Spiral Flowers

 

1

Attach the flower in the tweezers with the back side facing you and the petals up. 

2

Turn the flower around the tweezers with the front side facing in and keeping the bottom edge as even as possible.

3

When you are almost finished rolling apply adhesive to both the round tab and to the inside of the rolled opening of the flower.

4

Release the tweezers and pull the flower off holding the roll closed.  Attach the tab to the bottom and hold in place for a few seconds with your fingers to allow it to set the glue. 

5

6

Place the tip of your paper piercer down into the center of the flower to hold in place.

7

Push the petals out to open the flower.  I like to use the point of my second paper piercer to push each petal out individually but you can use your finger tip as well.

9

I applied gold paper pen to create the flower centers.

Flower Buds

10

I cut about 1/3rd of the flower and rolled it to create the bud.

11

I cut a small green triangle and cut across the top edge with deckle scissors to create a natural look for the bud foliage.

12

I applied adhesive to the green foliage and wrapped it tightly around the flower bud.

13

This bud is less than 1/2” long.  I left some of the petals straight out on a couple of the buds on my project and curled some back to look like they were beginning to open.
