I have had some requests on how to make roses. I first saw The Grunge Paper Roses at CHA in Orlando last year, at the Ranger Booth. They were made out of Grunge board paper. Then Bonnie made some for a couple of her projects. Most tutorials require a 6 petal punch. When Tim Holtz started his 12 Tags Of Christmas, I learned so many new techniques. One being the grunge paper Rose he did. I got to thinking, you could use different dies, (he used Sizzix #5 flower layers). I have seen variations using punches. So over at Swirlydoos, I decided to do a tutorial on the different variations using 5, 6, or 7 petal flower punches and dies. You could even use your Cricut or electronic die cutting machines, and if you are a SCAL follower, your flower arsenal would be endless!! They all work well. So stop on over at Swirlydoos real soon where there will be a tutorial posted sometime this week. And don't forget to keep watching for new tutorials on awesome techniques!!
