Rosebud Tutorial

As promised, here is the tutorial for making the rosebud using the Two Step Bird Punch from the latest mini catalogue:

Step 1 - Cut a strip of green cardstock (old Olive used here) about 3 cm (1 1/4") wide, this will save your cardstock and make rotating the 'hole' possible.



Step 2 - Insert the strip of cardstock from the right hand side of the punch and punch as shown above - you need the hole the end of the tail leaves.



Step 3 - Turn the cardstock over and insert fron the left hand side of the punch with the 'tail hole' in the window for the wing as shown above.



Step 4 - Punch a wing only from red cardstock (Real Red used here) and adhere the green wing with the hole in it over the red wing to form the calex of the rose.



Step 5 - Punch a leaf from the green strip and  adhere just the top leaf over the rose as shown above - et voila, you have a rosebud.

To see the rosebud used on a card go to this post.

I hope you enjoy making your rosebuds and as always, comments motivate me to write tutorials :-)

Have a great day
Lynette
