This Martha flower template is available here.
Martha Stewart et al make some lovely templates (like this single flower one) to make those sweet cards above with that cut out technique. However, I find their templates are usually a big waste of paper--especially for us crafters who can use different sizes of one image for many things.
The multi-sized flower template used to make these fabric sticker flowers is also great for:
- Sweet Floral cutout cards--(À la Martha Stewart)
- Paper piercing template (print on cardstock or printable acetate or transfer to plastic sheets)
- Vellum/cardstock flowers for scrapbooking
- Embroidery/glue-pen embossing guide
2. Cut out images and stick to a piece of paper; I love to use Dotto (repositionable adhesive) for this, so I can move them around for the best fit. TIP: it helps to keep print margins in mind.
3. Scan the page you've made:
I choose the black and white photo setting on my scanner (Canon Pixma MP210.) After scanning, there's an option to save as a PDF or a JPEG...I save one of each, because you can post PDFs in splitcoaststampers forum threads (and it won't alter in size--which seems to be crucial for some templates) --But if you want a pic of your template on blogger you need a jpeg instead.
Another advantage to having both a pdf & a JPEG is that you can manipulate the jpeg but not the PDF. It's of great advantage to be able to crop lighten or darken the image. You can also use imaging or photo manipulation software to change sizes/colours at your whim
