September Monthly Tutorial by Michelle Roos

Thank you Michelle Roos for working hard to create a tutorial for us to all enjoy and view!

We were so delighted and honoured when the very talented Michelle of My little Space on the WWW agreed to do a tutorial of her gorgeous flowers for us. Thanks so much Michel. Please drop by her blog and prepare to be amazed by her fantastic work!!

The next challenge at JUST MAGNOLIA TOO is based on this tutorial will run for a two weeks starting on Saturday 19th September and will close on Saturday 3rd October at 10pm.

List of supplies used

Sizzix Flowers Layers Die

Craft paper



Distress ink

Kitchen sponge

PVA glue

First off cut out two medium size flower shapes and 4 small.On the back of each flower shape, roughly draw a circle in the center:

On each flower, cut down into the petals to open them up a bit more

To add a bit of definition to the flowers, ink the edges of each petal as in the above picture.

Now on the right side of each flower, curl all the petals inwards using either tweezers or something similar.

Do the same on the wrong side of each flower curling all the petals inwards.

Here is a picture of all the flowers with the petals curled up.

Carefully uncurl the petals and on the right side of each flower emboss the center till they resemble the above picture

On the back of 5 flowers, put a small amount of PVA glue in the center. Now the fun begins, start layering up the flower

Here’s a close up to give you an idea what the flower should look like when all the layers are put together.

And here’s how the flower looks on a card.dscf6935

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my tutorial.
