With a few discarded mailing tubes, construction paper, and Fiskars Squeeze Punches you can craft these characters in under 20 minutes.
You can craft a few blooms to fill May Day baskets, or a whole bouquet to give to Mom on Mother’s Day. Everyone will be thrilled with this gift of handcrafted beauty.
I used three different Fuse Creativity System® dies to create these designs, but if you have more than these styles in your stash, I encourage you to try some other dies and invent your own blooms. Try combining several shapes and colors!
Sometimes, the best part of the crafting process is thinking of what you can do next. While creating this project, all I could I think about was possibilities for future blooms! I hope the same happens for you!
Cut a section from your tissue paper ream, and sandwich it between your flower die and cutting plate. Run it through your Fuse, and punch out your shapes. Select a second color of tissue, and do the same.
Stack twenty or so tissue flower shapes together so to the petals are offset. Mix the colors as you go.
Join the layers with a couple of staples.
Pinch the center of the flower to fold the petals forward.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the “pinch” to secure the bloom.
For the next style, cut a section of tissue from your paper ream.
Place it on top of the die, so a folded edge covers only the left third of the die. Place the cutting plate on top, and crank it through the Fuse.
Unfold the tissue, and you’ll have a petal shape.
Take one of the petals, and pinch it between your index finger and thumb. Pick up a second, pinch it, place it next to the petal you’re holding. Keep pinching and adding petals - work your way around the bloom until you’ve built a full flower.
Wrap the point where you’ve been pinching with pipe cleaner to secure the bloom. Next, use the “Mirror” die to cut a stack of petals.
Assemble the flower just like you did with the previous bloom, adding one petal at a time and finishing it off with a pipe cleaner. The scalloped edges of the mirror make a nice ruffled bloom, similar to a Peony.
Fill a vase, basket, or even a colorful paper gift bag with your blooms.
