How to Make 3D flowers a Silhouette Tutorial

Here is some of what you can expect in the Silhouette store this week: 3D flowers that assemble with a brad. These flowers are also now available in SVG cut file format from digiplayground.com 
I also have some Easter files going into the store.
They are really easy and fun to make, and you can mix and match parts from each of the sets to come up with even more flower options.

Here's what you will need:
A digital cutting Machine 
Assorted Cardstock
Brads
Stamping ink pads

You will also need the following Silhouette digital cutting files:

or
SVG digital cutting files from digiplayground.com

These instructions will work for each of these flowers. 

First use Stamping Ink to direct-ink the edges. 

 Do that for each of the layers with a coordinating color.
 After all is inked, then slide a brad through the center, adding the smallest layer first, then working up to the largest layer. Start to curl the edges of the flower with your fingers, or by rolling on a pencil.
This is what your flower will look like when finished. 

I'd love to see your projects that incorporate these flowers. 
Please share them with us on my Facebook page!

  1. Hi , great tutorial but maybe you could have added in the dimensions of the card itself ... one piece is no good without the other unfortunately .... Why dont choose the best Creative Pop Up Cards for you. Get it on http://popupcard.net.. I bought too many wedding pop up cards last year.
