# Build A Flower # cohenna

Twin cards and tutorial by Cohenna

Hello everyone. My name's Monika. I run a blog: My magic worldI love cards with 
all the flowers. I do all flowers myself, then they are unique. Privately I'm a wife 
and mother of two urchins. I live in a small village. Craft is my passion 
and a way to relaxIt is a great pleasure to appear here as a guest designer. 
Thank you for the invitation to this group of
extremely talented girls. I hope that my work will inspire you :)

Today I wanted to show two cards embellished with flowers created
with the Build a Flower #2 die.

Here is the step by step for making the flowers.
We need 5 large and 5 smaller petals.

Add a bit of distress ink, for my card I inked the entire petals.

Dry emboss the edge of the petals - you want it wavy

Trim the ends of the smaller petals

Glue together the larger petals using a piece of paper as the base

 Pinch the ends of the smaller petals to make bowls

Glue the smaller petals of the flower to the larger petal base

Add a thick layer of glue to the edges of the petals and then 
sprinkle with glitter; shaking off the excess.

then set aside to dry

Add glitter in the same way to the stamens, then make a hole
in the center of the flower and slide the stamens through.

Add a large pearl to the center of the stamens and the
 flower is finished.

 I trimmed the center of my French Pastry Doily so the DP 
would  show through, added assorted greenery and some 
white flourishes and then placed my flowers.



 I hope you have found my tutorial helpful.
