This 3-D flower was created using a flower that I had created for an earlier blog post freebie. It is the flower on the pedastel, without the pedastel of course. To make it 3-D I just used the dull side of my Exacto blade and made a bend in each petal. Then I glued them one on top of the other and added a gem. Easy as pie! To create a bunch of these cute flowers at one time, I've included a SCUT file as this week's freebie. There are two files. One is to be printed on patterned paper and the other on solid cardstock. It will make about 32 flowers. I just cut them out, then put them all in a ziplock bag, then while I'm sitting watching tv, I grab the bag, my exacto blade and glue and start assembling. A tip when glueing them together, use the opposite end of your exacto pen (or a pencil eraser) to push down in the center of each layer to glue them together. I find that putting it on a mouse pad or a couch cushion (as is the case while watching tv) it helps to keep the 3D effect when pushing with the eraser or end of the exacto pen.
