Thursday November 16th - Foamiran Pointsettia Tutorial

November 16, 2017

Today we are sharing with you a tutorial using the new Stencils at Magnolia-licious.

1. Use a stencil to draw a shape of a smaller leaf on the Foamiran. You can use a toothpick, BBQ stick or anything with a pointy end.

2. This way we have a very clear shape of a leaf on the Foamiran.

3. Time to cut it out.

4. For this card, I need a smaller flower, so smaller leaf. I have to cut off in the place shown on the photo.

5. Now I am using my leaf as a template for more leaves.

6. For one flower, I'll need 8-9 leaves.

7 & 8. It is easy to cut a few leaves at once.

9. I am using a leaf mold to add texture to my leaf. To achieve a nice texture, place the leaf on the iron first (or heat with a heat tool, but don't burn the foamiran) for a few seconds, place it on the mold and press. After a few seconds you will have leaf veins on your foamiran leaf.

10. Fold leaf in half and stretch a bit at the top of it.

11. Time to stick the leaves together. I am using the hot glue, only on the photo, you can see the craft glues as I wanted to show you exactly where to apply the glue.

12. The black line shows you where the glue goes.

13. Here I have the first layer of my flower. I usually use 5-6 leaves for it.

14. For the second layer I use 3 leaves (petals). Cut them slightly smaller to go in the center of my flower. In the middle I am using Stamens or other flower centers.
To achieve colored leaf veins on the light Foamiran, I ink the mold before pressing the leaf into it.

 Now you can add gesso or glitter to finish your flower.
