Show Me Sunday - A Tutorial by Joni!

Sunday, February 24, 2013


These are 3-D flower inchies on a card  (these are 2x2 inches so they are really called twinchies) and I'm going to walk you through making this 3 dimensional element without using pop-dots.

You can use any background you’d like for the 2x2 squares, but here is what I did:

Optional background steps:

   I started with 3 squares 2x2 inches of Kraft paper

Using a mix of Gesso & paint, brushed on and used texture tool to make pattern


 Punch flowers from pink cardstock
  

Fold flowers in half



Put the 2 “folds” together


Wrap twine around the folds to hold the 2 flowers together 
I opened the folded flowers back up so I really had 2 flowers back to back...
(you will be wrapping the “inner” folds of both flowers)
See several photos below







     Add a spot of glue to hold it

This is what they will look like




Adhere to your background squares


 I added purple punched butterflies (also folded to add dimension)

 Add glitter glue to embellish

Add squares to card and add sentiment and other finishing touches


Here is the finished card again and a couple closeups of the 3-D squares...
