Spring is in the air folks and all around us there are signs of new life and colour. Just head on down to your local garden centre and you will see pots of daffs,tulips and hyacinths. One of my favourite spring blooms is the pansy and you may have noticed that these featured this week on my Spring Fold card. Today I thought I would share with you how I made them.
This picture shows the stages involved in making the petals. Start with 21/2 butterfly shapes, cut the two whole ones in half and trim two to make smaller petals.
At this point you may wish to add a little glitter to the centres of the top two petals (In this photo they are the purple ones).
This photo also shows you where you add your tape on the back of your petals.
You may also wish to add details to your flower such as veins.
