How to make Rolled Flowers

Good morning everyone! These rolled flowers are popping up everywhere at the moment! Because I am just a little bit obsessed with making them lately, I made a little tutorial for them on the Kaisercraft blog, and I thought I would pop it on here too...


Step 1 – Cut out a circle and cut a spiral into it. When you get to the centre you should have a little circle shaped piece.


Step 2 - Distress the edges a bit, or leave them as they are. Play around with it a bit and see which look you prefer.


Step 3 – Start rolling the spiral up from the end. You need to keep it fairly tight as you roll it around or it may not work properly.





Step 4 - Remember the little circle piece at the centre? That’s all you should be left with now, so just apply a glue dot, or a big squirt of glue and press your flower down onto it, making sure the bottoms of all the rolls are sticking to it. Now go ahead and give it a try yourself, and you’ll always be able to make a flower to go perfectly with your project!

Wow Thanks for the explanation on how to get the turned over edges....I have made these before but mine don't have the turned over edges. So I snipped away around mine and distressed them. Such a different effect to these of yours. TFS Luv Shaz xoxo
