What you Need

Dovecraft Foam, Heat Tool, Pokey Tool, Glitter Card

First Edition Flower Die Set

How to Make

1. Begin by printing and cutting out your free template. Cut out 4 of each petal size on to pieces of Dovecraft Foam, using a different shades of pink foam for each size to create an ombre effect. This is for the larger flower. You will only need to use the two smaller sizes for the smaller flowers. Cut a small line where shown on your printable.


2. Heat each petal with the Dovecraft Heat Tool. TIP - This only takes a couple of seconds take care and do not heat for too long. Use the pokey tool to hold the petal so that you do not burn your fingers.


3. Remove the heat and gently pull and twist the end of the petal to create texture and movement.


4. Repeat the same technique with the leaves.

5. Cut a small square of foam, adhere the four larger petals to the edge of the square with Dovecraft Clear Glue. Build the flower up by adding smaller petals. Adhere the leaves to the back of the flower.


6. Keep it neat by adhering the end of each petal and leaf by over lapping the ends. Die cut the smallest flower from the First Edition Flower die set onto a piece of Dovecraft gold glitter card and adhering with glue to the centre of your layered flower.


7. Repeat this tutorial with the smaller flowers and adhere your finished flowers to your head band with extra strong glue.
