As I'm sure you know by now, I used a 5-petal flower punch for these flowers (glancing back at yesterday's post, I realize I must have said 'EK Success punch' a thousand times--how repeatedly! redundantly! repetitive! LOL.)
...BUT you can use these cutting styles with any flower punched, digitally cut, or die cut (or a flower doodle you've drawn & cut out) anything at all. And...If you're a beginner cutter, no worries: you'll see from my cuts that there's no need to have them perfect. (Isn't the shabby chic look liberating?)
Cut 5 little 'V' shapes out from between petals.
Cutting into the middle of the flower makes it easier:
(See the gap to the left of the top petal of the flower above?)
Just snip in and then roughly cut out the center:
That cut gap bit is all hidden when you glue the flower together:
Add any center you like:
Here's the same flower in teal:
For a more graphic or stylized version,
you can create squared petals on a smaller flower center:
...by cutting off the 5 petal tips:
(super fast floweriness)
Then use the same cutting method, as used on
the 1st version above, to take out the center:
Snip a little ways into the middle and....
Glue the new smaller center you've cut
onto a bigger flower & add an embellishment:
This one has a wee button sewn on.
and happy Spring to those who don't. Here's hoping that your season
is filled with bright new possibilities & blessings!
