Stampers’ Q&A: How do I make a flower with the Blossoms Petal Punch?

Hello stampers!  Just a few days ago, I pulled out the Build-a-blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals Punch and I LOVED the resulting card that I made with it.  I found it a bit tricky to figure out the best way to put this flower together, so today’s Stampers’ Q&A is just that….How to use the Build a Blossom Stamp Set and coordinating Blossom Petals Punch!

A few tricks I can tell you about:

  • Stamp your flower petals on little scraps of leftover cardstock.  The punch punches out 4 different petals, so if you use a good sized sheet, you will get a lot of waste.  Great way to use up scraps!
  • Punch a circle (at least 1 3/8) to glue the petals to.
  • Use the edge of your bone folder to curl the petals a bit.
  • Use 2 Way Glue of Tombow Multipurpose glue to adhere petals to your punched circle.
  • Use another circle (3/4″ is good) to adhere to the middle of the finished flower to ensure proper stickage! 
  • Use a brad to secure all layers together and look pretty!
  • Send this card to someone you know will appreciate all your hard work ;)
