Team Training for January ...

Welcome to our very first edition of Team Training brought to you this month by delightful team member Heidi Williams.

Each month one of our team will inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your scrapbooking pursuits. This month is all about handmade flowers.

Heidi's flower tutorial

Step 1:  punch out 3 flowers from cardstock and you will need 3 stamens and a lace die as your base.

Step 2: water spray your flowers lightly so they are easy to mould.

Step 3: use a quilling tool on a mat to mould the petals.

Step 4:  turn over and mould the centre section.

 Step 5:  pierce a hole in the middle of all the 3 flowers.

Step 6:  twist stamens and put through one of the petals.

Step 7:  glue each layer of the three layers in a staggered fashion and then finally glue the lace flower onto the bottom.

Hey presto - one sweet flower.

Don't forget to have your entry in for our challenge this month.  Some lovely prizes on offer - one prize by vote, another completely by random draw and a guest designer spot with RAK to offer one lucky entrant.  You have until 11.55 on 31st January to have your submission linked.
