Flower Tutorial #2 - Glass Flowers

I saw this technique on someones blog a while back,but can not recall who's. So who ever you are, thank you for sharing I enjoyed it. I have done it a bit different than she did, I think, but in the end it has the same effect. It is a great technique to share and pass along.

Start by punching multiple flowers using a couple punches, small, medium and large. I have used the same style in two sizes.

Heat up some UTEE in a melting pot. 

Curve the petals up on the flowers using your fingers.

Dip each flowers individually into the UTEE making sure that all areas are coated. Let cool slightly.  Don't worry if there are a few blemishes on the surface they will come out later.

Once cool (careful not to burn yourself) push the petals up into position and hold as the flower cools.

Place one flower inside the next and heat with a heat gun until the two stick together and all the small blemishes are gone.  Repeat with the small flower.

Finish off with some Kaiser pearls.  Attach to project or layout.

 I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did.  The flowers look like they have been made from glass.  You could also do this with flowers that are premade.   Keep an eye out I made several of these flowers to attach to a decor project that I just made.  I will be posting the project in the near future.
