Making Poppies ...

Hi Everybody,

Here as promised is the first of the Create a Flower Tutorials and this one uses the die that sold out first  when I showed it on  Create and Craft TV

The making of the flower is slightly different to the one I made on live TV as  I didn't have to worry about time running away with me.

The poppy was so popular and it makes the most beautiful flowers.

The card I am using is  the Christmas Red 270 gsm from Papermill Direct  and it is a good sturdy card that is ideal for either your base card or the flowers.

The video will take you step by step through the making of this flower and  there are probably many tutorials on how to do it  but this is just my way of making them

I have tried to keep the tutorial so that it is not too long and so I have stayed with the making of the flower and not made the complete card.

But it will give you some idea of how you may want to add the finished bloom to your projects

Today is my Card Class day but as soon as I can I will add another flower tutorial

More tomorrow ... 

Hugs xx
