Ever since I saw user anamoreno’s cutting file and video for a twisted rose it has been by far my favorite flower to use in my projects. Of course I don’t always want to use a rose, sometimes I want a different kind of flower. So I decided it was time to try my hand at creating my own twirl flowers. After I created my own rose I started messing with the petals and came up with flowers of all shapes and sizes – a water lily, cactus flower, double petaled rose etc. These flowers are my favorite because they are so easy to make. After you cut them, start twisting it on to itself starting at the outside edge. When you get to the inside end, wrap the last little bit underneath the bottom of the flower and put a big dot of glue on it. Press the rest of the flower down on to it and hold until it is stable. Then wrap the petals around a pen or painbrush handle so they get a nice curve. You can then ink them if you would like and I added little dots of crystal laquer to look like water. If the written directions aren’t enough for you, take a look at anamoreo’s youtube video to see it all live. This week’s project is FREE for everyone because we hit 800 members on our Facebook page!!
