Basket of Flowers by Jamie Cripps

Craftsy
Good Morning!  Jamie with you today to sharing a fun
tutorial for creating a basket full of flowers!


Silhouette Cut Files Needed:



Tutorial: 

Cut out several of the 3D Layering flower shapes in three different sizes so that you will have three flower sizes once assembled.


Once your flower pieces are cut, place a foam adhesive 
square in the center of the largest shape.


Adhere the middle shape to the center, off setting the petal forms as shown.  Place a second foam square in the center.


Adhere the smallest shape to the center, off setting the petal forms again.  Complete the flower by adding in a small pearl or gem.

Bend the flower petals to shape as desired.


Punch or cut several leaf shapes.


Place each leaf on a score board and create a score 
through the center of the leaf shape as shown.


Place a foam adhesive toward the stem of each leaf.


Then adhere the leaf shapes for the bottom of the flower.


Your flowers should look similar to the image above.


Cut out and assembled Samantha Walker's Woven Basket.  
Tie a piece of pink satin ribbon around the handle then
tie a piece of Blossom twine in the center.


Use fringing scissors to cut blades of grass.
If you do not have fringing scissors you could also use 
Samantha's Scallop Dot Fringe cut and remove the blades.



Place the blades of grass in the bottom of the basket.


Then start placing in your flowers!  You can use adhesive to hold them in place or just sit them within the basket. 



Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Without your readership, I wouldn't be doing a blog.
