Some of you may not know, but one of my other hobbies is cake decorating, and recently I was introduced to wafer paper. Edible paper. Yeah, you can see my brain going can't you? Paper I can put on my cakes? Paper I can use my punches with? Yes, please. I took a class on Craftsy to help get familiar with it and then just played around with different things to see how it worked.
Last night I got out one of my favorite punches and made a cardstock flower and then this morning I used similar techniques with wafer paper to make the same flower. What do you think? The flower on the left is card stock, the one on the right is wafer paper. And guess what? I took pictures making both of them so I could share with you how to make them. If you'd like to make the wafer paper flower, check out my cake blog for the tutorial.
So, let's get started.
Stampin' Up! Blossom punch. Then use Paper Snips to cut in a little ways between each petal. In this photo I've only cut 4 of the 6 so you could see how far in to go.
glue the sides together. It might help to wrap it around your paintbrush handle for this step.
And, voila! (There's another one of those words that needs a doohicky on top.) You have a beautiful 3D flower embellishment. I think I may glue this one onto a magnet or clothespin.
Till next time...
God's love and blessings!
