Check out these "Glass" Flower's!!
As many of you know from my mini's and video's, I'm loving punched flowers these days! I was playing around the flowers and UTEE in my melting pot and "glass" flowers were born.
To make these you will need punched flowers in a couple of sizes and/or shapes, UTEE and a Melting Pot by Ranger, a non-stick matt, Glossy accents by Ranger and/or a heat gun, tweezers and some embossing ink.
Use embossing ink to coat the tips of your tweezers to reduce how much UTEE sticks to them.
Punch your flowers in the card stock or patterned paper of you choice
Shape the flowers by folding or curling petals
Dip each flower section separately in the melted UTEE. Be careful it's HOT!!
After the flower sections cool. Trim any excess UTEE. You can heat the flowers with your heat gun to "remove" and blemishes.
Layer flowers and glue with Glossy Accents.
Alternately, you can layer and heat with the heat tool to meld the sections together.
Add bling and stickles to flower centers
Here I made a rose using the Tim Holtz method. I dipped each section before assembling the layers.
These flowers can be used on scrapbook layouts, Mini books, Photo Frames, Easter Baskets or other altered items.
Have fun playing with these and have an awesome week!
