Making Mulberry Paper Rosebuds & Adding some Grunge

Mulberry Paper Rosebuds

Using 4 small flowers

Take one flower and fold in half 3 times until it forms a tiny bud, maneuver it to form the shape you like, Glue each fold.

Take the next flower drop a dot of glue in the centre and fold in half, fold and glue this around the bud.

Glue the final two flowers to each other and glue the buds on top

and from me, Tracy

with adding a bit of grunge to your flowers

Paint a thick layer of crackle accent over 2 flowers and leave to dry

Cut small piece of double sided tape and place in the middle of 1 flower then adhere the other flower on top

Add button and baker's twine for a grunge flower effect

I used Antique Linen Crackle Accent and Brown and White Bakers Twine for this flower

By adding a thicker layer of paint and also different shaped flowers you will get a variety of finished flowers .... so have a play around its fun ... you just have to have the patience to wait for the crackle to dry (not my strongest strength!) so while waiting, go through your stash to find your centre pieces .. we have lots of resin and acrylic flowers which are perfect for your flowers OR cut up some bling chain to centre them

Have fun
