Creating a Hand Cut Paper Flower Centre0
So this week I’m going to do a simple tutorial on creating a centre for last week’s paper flower.
I often find that the centre of the flower makes a difference in the overall appearance of the paper flower as centre is where the detail is.
- Cutting mat
- A pair of paper scissors
- A pair of Shear ring scissors, I got mine off Amazon. .
- A4 sized intensive plain lilac card 210gsm
First you cut your A4 card in half.
Now cut one half in half.
You should have two quarters and one half.
Fold each strip in each in half.
Now use your shearers to cut a little way in to each from the folded end.
When you are done your paper strips should look like this.
Now take a pencil and start to slowly wind your strips around it, using the pencil as a center.
Continue until all the strips are wound around and now it should look like this.
Glue the ends with your glue gun.
Secure to the centre of your flower.
Now that the centre is in is makes a high difference on the appearance of the flower doesn’t it ..
I’m looking forward to seeing your creations..
