As promised, here is my “tutorial” for making orchids from the Bouquet Bigz Die found in the Occasions catalog. I was in a bit of a hurry when I was making these …so please forgive the the “neatness” factor of my photos!!! My glue gun went a little wild!! The end result is what counts…right?? So here goes….
|Add a drop of hot glue|
|and connect split end to give dimension|
|Do this to all five petals and cut a Melon Mambo flower center|
|Then starting with the 3 small petals, connect them together..(wild glue gun!!)|
|This is why I used hot glue....other adhesives pulled apart|
|Add the 2 larger petals as shown|
|(a little rough looking)|
|Sponge some crushed curry in the center....because it is not smooth, it doesn't look to "pretty" yet!|
|Fold the center into fourths|
|Add to orchid center and when it is done they look lovely!|
Hawaii here we come!!!
until next time…..
