Quick tip Tuesday

Hello fellow Cricuteers!!!

Welcome back to another QTT episode. Today I wanted to share a few tricks on how to make your paper blossoms stand out.

Place each petal on top of a piece of EVA foam or a mouse pad -on the soft side- and move a ball stylus around in small circular motions. This will curl your paper and give it more dimension.Using slim long nose tweezers pinch the petal in half lengthwise using your thumb and index finger. To create the curves of the petals hold by the base and fold back the edges using your tweezers.You can also distress the edges of each petal.

Bonus tip: If you do not have a ball stylus check the caps of your markers there are a few out there that have round caps that will work too ( i.e Recollections Signature) or create your own by rolling a small ball of polymer clay (bake dry) and you can place the ball on the opposite end of  your metal tweezers.

As Always thanks for stopping by!
Have  very crafty day!
