Tutorial: Paper Pansies (revisited)
Good Tuesday to you all, Stars & Stampers!
This week’s tutorial is a revisiting of a fantastic technique featured two years ago about creating paper pansies. Since it’s the end of the summer card-making time, let’s use up all of those scraps of pretty bright summer colors by making some flowers! The original post and all of the photos can be seen here.
Here is Darlene’s original video and a few more tips.
I don’t have one of those fancy butterfly punches, but I have a Cricut and there is an “apple” shape on George And Basic Shapes that does a similar shape to the wings when they are cut in half. I have cut apples at 1″ size and they work great for this tutorial. Be sure to follow the advice for not using glitter on your flowers as explained in the video… it’s tempting, I know! But they look just as beautiful without the glitter.
Be sure to share your pansy or other summer flower cards here and please, please, please leave a comment… I am in dire need of new tutorial requests and submissions… if you have a technique or tool you would like a tutorial on, send in your request or submit a tutorial to me by e-mailing me. nancy @ operationwritehome.org
