Punchcraft Flowers Tutorial- Tulips

Punchcraft Flowers
This spring theme layout  is my Guest DT project for Hands to Hearts on the theme Celebrating Womanhood .
This layout features my mothers younger sister with my daughter in a spring theme layout with lots of punchcraft flowers.
Punchcraft flowers
I used a balloon punch to make the paper tulips,punchcraft roses and punchcraft flowers
Punchcraft Flowers
I layered the photo on lace and added gel heart stickers, a handmade stick pin ,pearl strings ,Marianne die cut leaves and lots of handmade punchcraft flowers. 
Punchcraft Flowers
The vintage chandelier and clock are rhinestone stickers.The chipboard flourish is painted with a gel pen and coated with glossy accent .I used parchment paper to make the white punchcraft flowers.
Parchment flowers
My regular readers know that I dont stamp but in this project I used  a flowery spring themed "Love"  and "Always" stamp [sent to me by the generous Gopi for a challenge won by this House shaped box]
Punchcraft Flowers
Since I was not confident about my stamping, to jazz it up a bit ,I added tiny bindis[we Indian ladies use it to adorn our foreheads as a fashion accessory!] and tear drop quilling.

Punchcraft tulip tutorial
Punchcraft tutorial
Sharing a simple and quick paper flower tutorial.
Materials required
Paper : Cardstock  or  thinner paper depending on what your punch can punch!
Punches : Medium Jef balloon, Small Jef 5 petal. If you dont have punches hand cut  an ovoid shape.
Embossing pad or mouse pad
Embossing tool or any rounded object such as the back of a pen
Scissors
White glue - Fevicol mr is my preferred glue for punchcraft
Coloring medium:Stamp pads/color pencils /chalk etc - optional to shade the petals of your punchcraft flower
Punchart tutorial
Punch 5 balloons and one 5 petal flower.Shade the petals if desired. Emboss on the un-colored side by running the rounded tip just at the edge of the balloon shape to give a gentle cup as shown in the photo of the punchcraft tutorial
Punchart tutorial
Cut 1/4 length at the balloon tip. Apply a dot of glue to one half and  swing and stick the other half to make a cup shape as shown in the punchcraft tutorial
Punchcraft tutorial
Apply glue to the base of the cup shaped petal and stick it to the embossed 5 petal flower .Its easier if you use a pointed object as shown in the middle picture to stick the petals of the punchcraft flower
Punchcraft tutorial
Stick petals one by one -stick 3 petals in the outer layer and 2 inside to form your punchcraft tulip flower
Paper flower tutorial
I folded a strip of card stock and attached it to the base of the tulip.If you are on pinterest , pinning this collage summarizes the steps in this tulip flower punchcraft tutorial.

I hope you enjoyed this simple paper flower tutorial

  40. This is absolutely breathtaking! I love how soft and feminine it is. I especially love the chandelier. I'd like to ask a question. When you do pages that have so many gorgeous dimensional elements like the flowers do you frame them and use them as home decor, or do they work OK in an album? I love the look of the flowers but am worried they may get smashed in an album so I'd love to know what your experience has been with this.

    1. Thank you so much my dear friend. Actually this is my first 12 x 12 layout and I have only made one layout before this. The kind of flowers I have used here would not work on an album and I am actually going to get this framed to gift to my aunt who is featured in the picture.
