Hey everyone! I’m so excited to share my latest Faux-Quilted Paper Flower Tutorial with you. I love a quilted look but when it comes to sewing my skills are limited. Thanks to the new Faux-Quilting stamp line from Ann Butler I can add the look of quilting to my projects without ever picking up a needle and thread!
Ann Butler has also released a line of Colorbox Crafter’s Inks that allow you to stamp on fabric, wood and more!
I adore the bright colors in Ann’s Colorbox Crafter’s ink collection. Combining these inks with her new stamps makes the perfect faux-quilted paper flower!
I’ve been waiting for the right project to come along to use this fabulous Thimble shaped planter. I can’t think of a more appropriate posy than a faux-quilted flower can you?
How to make a Faux-Quilted Paper Flower
My latest flower making craze has been centered around Tim Holtz’s new Jumbo Tattered Florals die. Bigger IS Better when it comes to paper flowers.
- EZ De’s Faux-Quilting Stamps by Ann Butler
- Ann Butler Colorbox Crafter’s Ink
- Tim Holtz Jumbo Tattered Florals Sizzix Die
- Coredinations Shattered Card Stock
- Sticky Back Canvas
- 22 gauge floral wire
STEP 1: Start by making a template of your Jumbo Tattered Florals Die and cut two pieces of Sticky Back Canvas. Also cut 2 pieces of Coredinations (or card stock of choice) to adhere canvas to. Run through Sizzix machine.
*TIP* Use a bone folder to slowly adhere sticky back canvas to card stock to prevent wrinkling.
STEP 3: Curl and shape petals (See my petal curling & wiring tutorial HERE). Wire a vintage button, thread on a sewing bobbin and continue to thread on petals.
*TIP* I use 22 gauge Floral wire for the Jumbo flowers. You can see my tutorial for wiring the leaves HERE.
STEP 4: For an added touch of quilt inspired flair thread on a wooden spool to complete your faux-quilted flower. Fill your flower container with inexpensive spools of thread and mismatched buttons to complete the look!
I had “Sew” much fun creating this Faux-Quilted Paper Flower! I hope you have been inspired to try some Faux-Quilting projects of your own
