Handmade Flowers

I made these flowers with the sizzix flower layers #3 die. I used the two flowers that are the same shape. I used two of each size. Then I wet them using my homemade glimmer mist, sprayed them with starch, and then I crumbled them up. I dried all of them with my heat tool (not all the way) and unfolded the flowers. I then took my tweezers and twisted every petal, and used my heat tool until they were all the way dry. I took each layer and distressed them with ink that matched the flower. I hot glued all four layers together to a piece of chipboard and then put one of my rosettes in the center. I hope you like them. :)

Miniature Roses

Here are some of the roses I have been working on. I used the silk rose technique, but I just used smaller ribbon. They are perfect for the center of flowers, and they are quick and simple to make.

Hope you like them :)
