Tattered Rose Tutorial
By: Sarinda Jones

What you will need:
  • Patterned Paper: What’s Up?
  • Basic Grey Abroad side B (Red) Flower
  • Light as a Feather Side B (Teal) Leaves
  • Flower Punches or Cutting Machine.
  • Brad
  • Spray bottle with Water
  • Distress ink
  • Heat Tool

Step 1:
You will need 3 consecutive petal sizes.
I used 4 sizes because that is what the cutting file came with.
Punch or cut out
2- Large
2- Medium
2- Small
1-Extra Small

Step 2:
Stack flower with smaller petals to largest petals onto the brad.
Save leaves for later.

Step 3:
Once together spritz the layers with Water….
Just enough to soften the first layers of paper!
You can always add more later as you go.

Step 4:
Bring the first layer up around the brad to form a bud, continue for all layers, making sure the petals offset one another as you work.

The larger layers can have the tips folded back a bit to create an opening bud... 

Once done it should look something like this….

Step 5:
I cupped the flower in my palm and scrunched it
around and around to form it a bit more.

Step 6:
Dab the flower petal edges into the Distress ink.
Spritz with water to allow ink to bleed and run….

Step 7:
Gently open the petals; open out the largest layer to form nice open petals and allow the others to fall as they wish, we can open them a little more later...

Step 8:

 Once dried you can arrange the petals more if needed.
Use heat gun to dry. Keep the heat gun moving so you don't burn the petals.  Alternatively sit the flower let it dry naturally. 

Step 9:
Do the same process with leaves….
Add them below flower and fasten with brad.
