Hello everyone! I recently made a card for my niece and with the left over scraps from that project I decided to try out this floral die set that I picked up in Hobby Lobby to make embellishments. I made several variations with other paper scraps that were left over. They were so easy to make anyone can do it.

What you will need.
- Cardstock. (you can use this one or one of your choosing)
- Die cut templates (you can use paper templates as well)
- Die cutting machine
- Glue, scissors
- Dimensional adhesives
- Flat back gems or other embellishments.
- Paper punch
Decide which cardstock you want for which layer. This flower embellishment has a total of three layers. You can use the same color or you can mix and match for interest.
Cut out your floral patters using a die cutting machine. I used a Sizzix Big Shot, but any die cutting machine compatible with the die cuts should work.
Now assemble your layers. Some of these I layered directly on top of each other and for some I used dimensional adhesives to create height. Placing the largest layer at the bottom ensure that all the petals are raised up.
Next, put the other layers in place separated with a dimensional adhesive.
The smallest shape is glued directly onto the middle shape. This size did not come with the die set but I used a small poppy punch that I have to make this one. As an option, you can apply distress ink around the edges of poppy.
At the center of the last and smallest layer place an adhesive gem or flat back pearls. Allow the adhesive to dry and adjust the petals to give a 3D impression.
Mix and match depending on what materials are available to you. Experiment with different flat back pearls or gems for the center.
This flower embellishment can be used to decorate packaging on products, or to accessorize greeting cards or in scrap booking. Either way they add a nice decorative touch.
I would love to hear from you. Let me know how your embellishment turned out. Remember you don’t need die cuts. Paper templates work just as well. Join the Yuni Tribe to get the newest project directly in your inbox.
