Tulips

10:00 0 Comments
Hi, DT Henriëtte here. This is my first post as a design team member for 14 craft bar and I'm very excited.
I live in The Netherlands and our national flower is the tulip, so I've decided that the tulip would be the perfect flower for my first blog post here.


I've used an old die I had in my stash to make the petals but you can easily draw a 3 petal shape on paper, then cut it out and trace the shape on the foamiran with a toothpick. For each tulip bud you'll need two of these 3 petal shapes or you can cut 6 to 9 single petals.
Here are the supplies I've used to make my tulip flowers.



I've used pink and purple foamiran for the flower buds and green foamiran for the leaves.
I always color the petals with chalks or soft pastels before holding them to the heated iron.

The centre of the flower is made from a small ball of silver foil with a pointed tip. 
I glued the stem of the flower (wire) in the silver foil ball with my hot glue gun.



I prick a hole in the middle of the 3 petals and slide it on the wire up to the silver ball and glue the petals around it. And then again with the next 3 petals making sure that the silverfoil ball doesn't show (if it does, the ball is too big).


Then I wrapped flower tape around the wire. About halfway I've added a leave (hand draw and cut), using my glue gun and putting tape on it for a nice finish.



I hope you have enjoyed my first post for 14 craft bar. I would appreciate it if you leave me a comment. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hugs, Henriette.

How to make carnations with fabulous FOAMIRAN

19:21 0 Comments
Morning everyone and welcome to 14 Craft Bar and my first ever post with this lovely Design Team.

Today I have kept things simple and made a pretty white carnation. 
If you would like to make one too, please follow along with my tutorial below.

HERE IS THE TUTORIAL FOR THE WHITE CARNATIONS


YOU WILL NEED
White and green foamiran, cocktail stick, stencils, scissors, ball tool, foam sponge, brown ink and applicator, iron and hot glue gun.

Foamiran - WHITE










STEP 1
Gather supplies 

STEP 2
Take the white foam, stencil and a cocktail stick, fold foam in half and trace around the flowers with the cocktail stick, I used four flowers per each finished carnation, cutting two at a time.

STEP 3
Cut out all your flowers, you will need four per size if you want to make four flowers in different sizes

STEP 4
Take scissors and cut off the edges with a frill

They should look like this

STEP 5
Now take the green foamiran, stencil and cocktail stick and draw around the leaf shape

STEP 6
Cut out all your leaves, I used three per flower

STEP 7
Using the cocktail stick and a hot iron (no steam) heat flower for a few seconds on medium heat

STEP 8
Whilst still hot, roll and squeeze the flower between your fingers

They should look like this, from the iron to squished

STEP 9
Do the same with the leaves

Your leaves should look like this

STEP 10
Now using your ball tool, squish the centers of the flowers into the foam 
I used ordinary kitchen sponge with a dry wet wipe on top


Squish each layer one at a time

Your flowers should look like this

STEP 11
Now add a small dot of hot glue between all the layers and hold tight until cool

STEP 12
Lightly ink the leaf edges in brown ink

STEP 13
Hot glue the leaves to the back of the carnation

Like this

Your finished carnations should look like this

MANY THANKS for following along today, I hope you liked my tutorial and will have a go.
