Paper Rose and Rosebud tutorial

Punchcraft flowers
As a Christmas gift for my daughter's teacher we made a handmade recycled photoframe and matching star shaped gift box .
Punchcraft flowers
We decorated our photoframe with handmade paper rosebuds and punchcraft roses
Punchcraft flowers
The golden dots on the house ,fence and lacey hearts are bindis [fashion accessories!].Wrapped half a punched flower on flower pollens to make the tiny flower buds.
Punchcraft roses
The photoframe is a recycled craft[Click here for photoframe tutorial]
Handmade photoframe
To jazz it up a bit in the festive spirit added glitter glue on the leaves and vines of the punchcraft roses.
Punchcraft flowers
Making the mulberry type punchcraft roses used in these projects are a bit tricky and I didnt want to flood this blog post with the pictorial photos so made a slideshow tutorial .Please click on the little triangles to advance to the next slide of the punch craft rose and rosebud tutorials.
Tips to make a good rose and rosebud[This applies to the flowers in this tutorial only]
Paper: Paper chosen is of the utmost importance here.I found thin punch craft paper gave better results than cardstock as you need a bit of malleability.Some punchcraft paper  does not stick easily...such papers will be a nightmare to work with ..experiment.
Glue: I used Fevicol MR. 
Dont use runny glue...it should be a bit thick...if your glue is fresh and runny...put a big blob on a plastic/other surface and let it thicken for some time before you use it.
Glue gun will scorch your hands[I tried ..so beware of shortcuts in this particualr punchraft rose!].
Your glue should not be very fast drying as you need a bit of time to mould and arrange the petals.
Use the bare minimum of glue or your bud will be a squishy ball!
Here is the closeup of the matching star shaped box

Used the new Itsy Bitsy dies [love them] to make the hanging drop border on my star box

Added the same flourish vine ,MS lacey heart and silver die cut butterfly on the lid of the star shaped box.

  15. Wow ! the set is beautiful but this time I liked the box more for its unique shape !Thanks for tutorial .I had tried this rose but the petals wouldn't just stick together to form inner bud.I guess paper n glue to be the culprits .
