Hello friends! Not long ago, I saw a Design Team call for "Hobby Baby". I hopped over to check out their products to see if it might be a good fit for my personal style...and, it sure seems to be! They have some awesome products and I'd like to get my little hands on several of them :) You can check out the blog to read the Design Team details.
One of the requirements is to post a project with a tutorial. I've decided to show you how to make flowers out of foam packaging sheets. One of the Companies I design for uses these foam sheets in the monthly shipment of product. You know me, I couldn't throw them away! LOL!
So here's how to make the foam flowers.
Start with foam sheets.
Using Tattered Florals die and Accucut, diecut several flowers.
Using Alcohol Ink (Kuretake) and a paint brush, brush the ink on the foam flowers.
The more ink you add, the darker the color.
Stack and layer the flowers and insert a brad in the center.
After the brad has been added to secure the flower, add drops of alcohol ink to random areas of the flower.
Using a heat embossing tool, heat the petals of the flower. The foam will curl and melt when heat is applied.
