and here is a close-up!
These are what is called "fringed flowers" in the world of quilling and Cecelia Louie designed a cutting file for those of us with digital cutters. When I saw this, I just had to purchase it. If you are interested, you can find it at her Etsy site here! The file includes a really nice PDF with very good instructions and DXF, STUDIO and SVG formats. Thanks Cecelia! The "plate and stand" that I used is a free fill download by Sue Lough in the UK and you can obtain it here! I did alter the plate a bit for my project, but I love her file...thanks Sue!
OK, so now on to "My Paper Roses"! I "googled" paper flowers looking for a really good rose file. I found videos showing how to make them, but not a file that I really liked, so I proceeded to make my own and I'm sharing it with all of you. When you download the file there will be a link to a video by "shabbybeautiful" that I used for my inspiration, in fact here is a link to her video! Here are the first two roses I made using my file.
For the largest one I used Bazzill smooth white cardstock and for the smaller one (which I brushed with some yellow pigment ink in the centers with a stencil brush) I used Colorbok Textured White Cardstock from Walmart....it is a bit thinner. I'm also going to try this with some other thinner cardstock I have in my stash and some 24 LB white paper from Epson. Why don't you download my FREE file and give it a go....just put your own "spin" on it!!! Just click on the file format of your choice below to download the file!
I would LOVE to hear your comments on these roses and my file! Enjoy!!!
