Morning everyone and welcome to 14 Craft Bar and my first ever post with this lovely Design Team.
Today I have kept things simple and made a pretty white carnation.
If you would like to make one too, please follow along with my tutorial below.
HERE IS THE TUTORIAL FOR THE WHITE CARNATIONS
YOU WILL NEED
White and green foamiran, cocktail stick, stencils, scissors, ball tool, foam sponge, brown ink and applicator, iron and hot glue gun.
Foamiran - WHITE
Take the white foam, stencil and a cocktail stick, fold foam in half and trace around the flowers with the cocktail stick, I used four flowers per each finished carnation, cutting two at a time.
Cut out all your flowers, you will need four per size if you want to make four flowers in different sizes
Take scissors and cut off the edges with a frill
They should look like this
Now take the green foamiran, stencil and cocktail stick and draw around the leaf shape
Cut out all your leaves, I used three per flower
Using the cocktail stick and a hot iron (no steam) heat flower for a few seconds on medium heat
Whilst still hot, roll and squeeze the flower between your fingers
They should look like this, from the iron to squished
Do the same with the leaves
Your leaves should look like this
Now using your ball tool, squish the centers of the flowers into the foam
I used ordinary kitchen sponge with a dry wet wipe on top
Squish each layer one at a time
Your flowers should look like this
Now add a small dot of hot glue between all the layers and hold tight until cool
Lightly ink the leaf edges in brown ink
Hot glue the leaves to the back of the carnation
Your finished carnations should look like this
MANY THANKS for following along today, I hope you liked my tutorial and will have a go.
