Wednesday Tutorial Day at Bugaboo

Today I'm going to share with you how I made these beautiful flowers that I used on this Layout. I bought several types of organdy and ran them through my Big Shot using a Sizzix flower die. For the flower below I used two layers of organdy flowers.
Each layer requires 4 of these flowers and one pattern paper flower for the backing and another flower and a rhinestone for the top.
I folded each of these flowers into fourths

They are slippery little devils.

I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to hold the petals together.

It is hard to show the two different layers but you can see what a fluffy flower this makes.

Staple the organdy to the pattern paper flower that you have shaped and rounded from the back.

Here is the side view of the finished flower.

I cut several pieces of fabric and attached to the center of this flower that I cut from the pattern paper and then added a small flower and rhinestone.

All the flowers close up.

For the pointy flowers I cut several layers of organdy and a piece of felt and pattern paper and topped it all off with a rhinestone.

Another pointy flower.

Here is another view for you.

And one last view.

I used Basic Grey, Olivia, paper for this layout and the butterflies are from Bugaboo. You can find the image here.
I hope you all enjoyed this. Have a great day everyone.
