3D Vellum Flowers


I love making 3D paper crafts!

To make a glitter brad, apply VersaMark to the brad, dip it into Heat and Stick powder and heat with heat tool. Dip it into Heat and Stick powder again, reheat and dip it into glitter. Heat to secure the glitter, but be careful not to overheat or the glitter will become dull! Let cool.

The daisies are made from vellum cut with the Big Shot and the Daisy die. I coloured 4 large and 2 small flowers with ink and a sponge dauber on both sides for each daisy. Then curl the petals against a bone folder.

Use adhesive between the layers and adhere circles of card stock on the top and bottom, then punch a hole through the stack. Apply glue dots to the underside of the brad and insert it into the hole.

Put a glue dot between the prongs of the brad and insert a length of floral wire. Wrap with floral tape.

For the small filler flowers use the small oval punch to cut the vellum and sponge ink onto both sides. When dry apply a glue dot to one end and place a length of fine floral wire with a curled end on the adhesive and pinch it closed.

For the dragonfly wings I stamped the outline image with VersaMark on vellum and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. After cutting the wings out I used sponge daubers and ink to colour them. Use glue dots to adhere the wings to the beaded body.

An otherway to make a sparkly brad is using crystal efects and then glitter.
