Pom Pom Flower Tutorial by Emma Smith

Hello everyone I'm super excited to welcome you all to the first craftwork cards design team tutorial :o)

But before we get onto my tutorial i just wanted to thank you all for the lovely comments you have left about the wall hanging and cards i shared with you in my last post they are very much appreciated by me, craftwork cards & fellow DT'ers.

Anyway onto the fun bit the tutorial on how to make my little pom pom flowers as featured on the wall hanging in my last post. And the good news is there sooo easy to make.

What you will need:

What to do:

Punch out 6 circles and fold into quarters

Unfold and put embossing tool in the centre of the circle

Wrap the paper around the embossing tool

 Unfold 1 circle and flatten (this is the base)
Partly unfold the other 5 circles

Glue 4 pieces to the base and 1 at the top
Add distress ink and/or glitter to make them stand out on your projects.

Finished samples

Here I've used the frame to make a mini shaker card embellishment with one of the tiny pictures from Memory Lane Project of the Month Kit or buy extra sheets Here.
All the little flowers come in the kit along with some beautiful adhesive pearls that finish your project perfectly. Card blank is called Fanciful card.

Here I've made another shaker card from the stunning silver oval frame with added silver accents and flowers brushed with silver glitter.
Card blank can be cut to size from Straight edge 203mm x 203mm card.

The frame on this card has been used as a mirror on a dressing table (cut on a eclips machine)
The chandelier in the background is the Bohemian 8x8 free spirit paper for the Project of the Month Kit.
Card blank used is a Scallop edge 203mmx 203mm card.

So there we go guys a tutorial and a few cards for you, hope you like them and give them a try,
keep your comments and suggestions coming we love to hear from you.

Bye for now
Emma xx
