 Lutradur Flower

Materials:

  • Lutradur Mixed Media Sheets – regular weight (70 gram)
  • Scissors – plain, pinking and/or scalloped
  • Small hole punch
  • Large craft tweezers
  • Heat gun
  • Large decorative brad
  • Glitter glue
  • Desired colors of spray ink- TIP: Mix a few drops of one or two colors of Liquitex Acrylic ink with a few ounces of water in a travel spray bottle.

 

Instructions:

  1.  Trace and cut from sheets of Lutradur:  Four large 3-1/4″ circles; Two medium 2-3/4″ circles; Four small 2-1/2″ circles
  1. Cut 3/8″ snips all around the diameter of the small and medium circles to create fringed edges.
     
  2. Trim around the edges of the large circles with pinking or scalloped scissors.
     
  3. Punch a small hole in the center of each circle.
     
  4. Place 2 circles together, hold them firmly with a pair of large tweezers  and quickly pass a heat gun near the edges to lightly melt the Lutradur all the way around. This will make the edges unpredictably curly and lacey.
     
  5. Repeat with 2 more circles at a time, until you have melted the edges of all the circles.
     
  6. Use a spray ink to add color to each circle, allow to dry.
     
  7.  Stack your circles on top of each other, with the smallest on top and the largest on the bottom.
     
  8. Twist them around until you like how they nest together, then insert a large decorative brad through the holes in all the layers.
     
  9. Dab a little glitter glue on the edges.
