I have used 5 to 6 petals for each flower in order to get the circular shape. In order to make the flowers firm, I have assembled the flower slightly differently and have not attached it to 3d cups and then to stems. Instead I have merged the stems onto the flowers. I used this same method to assemble the red flower in Flower Shower even though I used a 3d curved cone to attach the petals on to. It made it so much firmer and easier to shape the flower like a cup. I think the most important part of creating 3d flower is to shape them into cups rather than making them like discs.
For the leaves too I have adopted a method similar to the one I used in making the veins in my poinsettia tutorial. I love the natural look of these compound leaves.
For the stems too, the tutorial is available here, but I have used 3 strips to make the thicker stems.The edging strips are hand folded and are pretty easy to make.
I am planning to do 3 tutorial from this frame so, those of you who are not already following, click on " Get Updates". It is a very simple process to follow the blogs you love and you can learn anything for free thru these blogs.
The tutorials will be on
