Persian pink paper flowers0
Hi everyone, it's Stacey. I've been experimenting with the lovely pearlised papers again this week and crafted some more pretty flowers. The pearlised papers come in different weights and I chose to craft with the 100gsm papers. They're great for adding a bit of glitz and glam to any project. The variety of colours available means you're spoilt for choice too. If your working on invitations, menus, name cards etc I'd recommend looking at the 300gsm range.
So the two colours that were on the craft table this week were Lustre print silver persian pink and Lustre print silver cream. Two gorgeous girly coloured papers that are single sided. I found the contrast between the shiny pearlised side and the white back worked nicely together on the curled petals.
Using Adobe Illustrator I designed my own svg flower file. I then used the pink paper to make my petals and the cream for the flower centre. Once all the petals were cut on my Cricut machine I used scissors to gently curl the petal edges. I can't stress how careful this part is, I lost a few petals being heavy handed with my scissors, whoops! Gently does it to create nice curved ends.
Once all the petals were curled I glued them together, stacking them in order of size.
After all the petals were glued together I added the centre piece to complete. I used Mod Podge to glue my flowers together.
I delicately used my tweezers to curl/raise the inner edges. Ta da! Beautiful pearly blooms.
