Jane Gill Floral Punch Craft


Good Morning

I have the instructions for the beautiful flower card that Jane Gill made for our demonstration night, that you all loved.  And just by the side of the flower is one of Jane’s own designs of rubber stamps, it is the bubble butterfly done with shrink plastic.

For the flower on Jane’s card she used three Woodware scallop circle punches, the purple, pink and blue. Here is how Jane made it….

Punch two of each (you will have six circles), edge with contrasting ink pad on both sides. Cut each circle into eighths. Hold point side up in closed tweezers and wrap widest part around tweezers using finger and thumb to curl paper.  Do one piece clockwise and the next anti clockwise, repeat on all pieces and keep in size piles!

Punch six daisies (green punch) and stick shapes from each pile around daisy petals. You will now have six shapes with eight petals on each. Place one inside the other beginning with the largest. Finish the middle with three punched shapes from the Woodware  swirl using brown or green paper/card. Give each of these shapes severe cup character and stick one inside each other.

If you need any of the punches etc for this project please visit our website www.craftrange.com or give us a call on 01282 833091, if you are unable to find what you need.  We have hundreds of items in store that are not on our website.

Untill next time
