Foam Flower Tutorial with Bonus Layout.

Art Foam Flowers

We create for many different reasons,  sometimes for pleasure or perhaps to capture a precious memory or occasion that has happened in our lives.

Finding the right paper or embellishment can help us to achieve the reason why we have started to create in the first place.

Creating flowers adds an element of beauty to layouts.  They can be used in both masculine and feminine layouts.

By making them feel ‘vintage’ you certainly can  see how effectively they  compliment photos and papers.

Varying the size of the flowers also adds interest to layouts .

To learn how to make these flowers, watch the tutorial below.

Art Foam Flower Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some  different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals. Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.
