Make Realistic Paper Flowers with Embossing Tools
Making realistic flowers can be easy if you have the right tools. I was shown how to do this technique by Sue Eldred and thought it was the most fantastic thing since sliced bread. I used Sizzix leaves and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, Walnut Hollow Embossing tools, Flower Soft for the centers and Smooch Spritz for the wonderful shimmery effect.
I made these for myself after I made a very large bouquet for an article in Crafts N Things Magazine. That project is shown below.
There are so many ways you could use this technique. For Crafts N Things I paired them with vintage sheet music to create a romantic yet nostalgic feeling.
