Bazzill Tattered rose tutorial

I taught this handmade flower as part of a class earlier this year, and have had a few requests for pictures. The first time is a bit fiddly, after that you'll be in love!

You will need Bazzill Cardstock, EK success large and medium retro flower punches, ink, sponge and rhinestones (optional)

punch 2 large and 1 medium flower from Bazzill cardstock (it must be Bazzill as it has 2 layers, this will not work with regular cardstock)

Now scrunch those flowers up, really well. the more you scrunch the easier the next step will be. Open them back up again.

This is the trickiest part! Peel apart the 2 layers of Bazzill on the flowers by separating at the tips of the petals and peeling back to the centre- don't pull the centre apart. Do this for each petal on the three flowers you have punched.out

Roll both layers of petal toward the centre of your flowers. It doesn't have to be uniform. You are going for a "distressed" look. Now stick the 2 large flowers on top of each other. Try to off set them a little, Add the smallest flower to the centre.

Apply ink to the flower with a sponge for a lighter look, or direct to the flower with the inkpad for a deeper colour. You can do this before or after you assemble the flower. Just keep adding ink until you're happy with the look

stick a gemstone to the centre . Here's a close-up for you

use your flower to decorate cards, scrapbook pages or gift boxes.

If you make any projects using my tutorial please give credt with a link back to my tutorial and, please post a comment here with a link to your blog. I'd love to see them.
