monday... stretching your flowers in your monthly kit tutorial

Amarilys here and today I want to quickly share with you how to stretch those flower embellies in your kit! So, let's get started!

  • IAR white/pink roses
  • peach pearls
  • adhesive of your choice
Step 1. Start with one of the IAR rose included in your kit.

Step 2. Carefully, start breaking up your rose into single layers. The first 3 layers will come off easily but the last one is a bit tricky. Take your time so that you don't break it. remember that they are made out of paper! :)

Step 3. You will end up with four single layer flowers and a green stem.

Step 4. Layer two of the blooms together, staggering the petals abd cut the green part in half.

Step 5. Adhere the green leaves under the flowers.

Step 6. Add a large pearl included in your kit as the flower center. You now have two flowers out of the one bulky rose.

I did this with all of my roses included in the kit and ended up with more than enough to make my layouts! I hope that you give this a try and keep it in mind for future kits!

Here's one of my projects using the main kit only:
