**RoseBud Flowers** Tutorial

This is ONE of my favorite Flowers
to make and they are
super easy to make!!!!!!
Here is what you will need to get started...
**Pattern paper(double-sided, because both sides of the paper will show)
**some sort of mist (I used "spring Rain" Glimmer mist, its basically clear, but you can use any color you like)
**Adhesive(I used Helmar 450 QuickDry, which is in the store and is the BEST)
**Paint, Stickles or anything you want for sparkle, I've used both


Step 1: Cut a swirl in your paper paper like this...


Step 2: Spray your swirl/flower lightly with Glimmer mist, on both sides and let dry abit. I mist the flower so its easier to manipulate the flower and turn the edges while folding...


Step 3: Start folding the flower like this, you can start turning the edges to distress it abit, it's up to you...I like a NOT perfect flower...




When you are finished folding the flower it will look something like this (when you are happy with the size of your flower, cut off the pattern paper access and glue to flower with your adhesive:

Step 4: Next, you will need to cut a small circle out of the pattern paper to put the flower on to stable it better, use your Adhesive for this part...


Step 5: Now, you can leave the flower the way it is or distress it up abit...I used the shimmerz paint and painted the flower edges and turned/rolled them abit...




Now, you can use the flower like this or dress it up abit more, as I did here..I torn apart a prima flower and used the center of it for my center of my rosebud flower and then glue my flower to a prima flower...like this...


Check out a couple of my layouts using these flowers...


AND a recent layout using the MayKIT...



Can't wait to see ALL of your flowers :)
