Sheer Spring Flowers
Perfect for a wedding, Mother's Day, or just springtime decoration, these elegant Sheer Spring Flowers, from Debbie Buckland, are easy to make and look beautiful in a bunch or by themselves. These sheer flowers are perfect for bouquets or hair clips, too! While these flowers are a beautiful lavender blue, you can make them in any color you'd like...and an arrangement of colors would look great on your Easter table!
- Sheer white fabric
- Stampin up! Re-inkers or other re-inker you prefer (I used tempting turquoise)
- Flower stamens – spotlight stores or craft stores
- DMC thread that matches your chosen colour (I used 392)
- Fiskars Micro tip Scissors
- Small wide flat lid that fits your flower and some water
- Cut out three flowers. I used quicKutz cookie cutter dies nesting flowers.
- Put 4 drops of re-inker in the lid and put a bit of water in it and mixed it then put the flowers in the ink to colour them – rest them on a stain resistant surface then transfer into a towel to dry naturally. (blotting takes out the color) also do the stamens if desired. 4 for each flower is good.
- Let dry for about 30 minutes.
- Stack your flowers and find the middle then snip a small hole.
- Fold stamens in half and poke them through the hole in the flowers.
- Now get out your thread and secure the stamens in the flower by poking through the needle between the stamens and wrapping around.
- Now to alter the actual first petal neat the stamens poke your needle half way through the petal and then through the middle of the flower. Pull firmly but not too much. This scrunched the petal a bit.
- Now tie a knot in the thread and finish it off.
- You have finished the flower!
- Keep repeating for as many flowers as desired. Then enjoy them by putting them on your favorite projects.
