DIY Friday #9: Cabbage Rose

Today's DIY: Friday comes to you from Natasha Naranjo Aguirre, to view the original post click here. I LOVE this weeks DIY project, as you can tell with previous DIY Friday projects I love flowers and learning how to make them, this cabbage flower is beautiful and I am excited to share with you how to make it!

Here is the flower you will be learning how to make today:

Step 1: Use 4 different sizes, 3 layers for each size

Step 2: Use stylus and rub each petal in a circular motion to form a cut shape. Do this for every petal in the first layer

Step 3: Then rub the center of the flower in the same manner

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 & 2 on layers 2-8 (as seen in photo below)

Step 5: On the remaining layers use needle nose pliers or tweezers, gently pinch & twist the center of each petal to create a ripple

This is what all of your layers should look like:

Step 6: Take layer 1 and apply a little adhesive to the top of the layer, pinch the layer shut to create bud

Step 7: Take layer 2 and add glue in the center of the flower, adhere the bud inside layer 2

Step 8: Continue this process with all of the cupped layers off-setting the petals

Step 9: Then adhere the remaining flowers in the same manner, off-setting the petals

And here is the finished product!

<3 this flower! Be sure to stop back next week for another DIY Project =)
