Papercrafting 101: Handmade Flowers Video Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Today I have Papercrafting 101 Handmade Flowers Video Tutorial to share with you.  It’s the second installment in my Papercrafting 101 series on YouTube.  You can find the first video , All About Adhesives, HERE.

So many of you have asked me to do some flower making tutorials.  Here’s what we will cover in this loaded video tutorial:

  • Flower Making Tools
  • Filling Flower Centers: Stamens and Prills
  • How to quickly and easily color flower petals
  • Stamping and die cutting flower layers
  • Shaping petals the easy way
  • Different surfaces to use when making paper flowers

Since we are coming up on Christmas, I zeroed in on handmade poinsettias.  Rest assured, the tips and techniques I share in this tutorial can easily be translated when making other paper flowers.

Papercrafting 101: All About Adhesives: My Favorites

Hello, Friends!  Today’s post is all about adhesives: liquid adhesive, tape runners, foam dimensionals, metal glues, Scor-Tape, gel mediums, collage mediums and even ….magnets! Where would we be in our crafting without these necessary items in our tool boxes?  Every crafter needs good adhesives.  Today we will explore some of my favorite adhesives, and learn a little bit about how to use them.  I even have a tutorial that will help you learn how to place magnets perfectly on a folio or flap.

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I prepared a little video for you.

What’s your favorite adhesive?  I’m always interested in any undiscovered treasures you might know of.  Will you share it with me in the comment section below?

Are you interested in more of these papercrafting 101 posts?  We can talk about all kinds of tools, supplies, organizational tips and more.  Let me know your thoughts, please.
