Faux-crylic Flowers Tutorial

Faux-crylic Flowers Tutorial

I have had a few emails asking some specifics about the recent “faux acrylic/plastic” flowers that I’ve had on the last several posts.   I thought I would show you how I made them and hopefully ya’ll aren’t sick of them yet. LOL!

This is a really easy process and you don’t need anything special… I think most crafters have a heat gun and embossing powder… and I KNOW you all have stamps! 🙂 This is also a great project for using up those odds n ends paper scraps or papers you thought you loved but now can’t seem to figure out what to use them on….


Supplies Needed:
* Embossing Powder
* Versamark Ink
* Heat Gun
* Scissors
*Chunky Floral Image – CTMH Rustic Flowers
* Something like a pencil to roll your petals on
* Patterned Paper – Basic Grey

Step 1:
*  Load up stamp with versamark ink.  Stamp firmly and evenly onto paper.


Step 2:
* Sprinkle generously with clear embossing powder, tap off excess.


Step 3:
* Heat with heat gun and melt all powder.


Step 4:
* Cut out shape around embossed image.


Step 5:
* Curl edges around a pencil or other small round object.


Step 6:
* Scrunch the center and press petals forward.




Inky Smiles!
