FileKutz’s "Flower Petal Blossoms" is a must have file for everyone, you can purchase it for $1.99 at FileKutz Design's Shop. Included in the file are many petals, stems and leaves to mix and match and make many different types of flowers. I wanted to show you how easy it is to create a rose with part of the file.
I took the “heart” shaped petals and cut the whole group four times which will create one rose. I chose several different leaves to cut out so that I can play with them and see which one I like the best for my project.
I then used my piercer to punch a hole in the bottom of each heart shaped petal. And then using a brad, I layered the petals on it starting first with the smallest set to the largest set.
When you are done, it will look like this, I know, not much of a rose at this point, but stick with me here!!
I then started scrunching up the petals starting in the middle………
……and keep going until you have scrunched each petal. I know, still not looking like a rose but trust me, it will.
Then you take any skinny round tool you have like your piercer, a thin pencil or stick (I used a wooden skewer) and starting on the outside petals, roll each petal around the tool……….like pictured below.
Leave a couple petals scrunched in the middle to create the rose center. You see, it has started to look like a rose now.
I then added black diamond stickles to my rose and a couple of red “splatters” so I can use it for a new project coming up……stay tuned to the FILEKUTZ’s blogs or forums to see what the black rose has transformed into and how it will be used.
