Foamiran Flowers Tutorial
Total Time: 30 minutes
Step 1: Prepare a circle to create a flower
The circle will be a blank for the petals of the flower. To make the circle smooth, you can prepare a round cardboard blank beforehand and then transfer it to the wrong side of the foamiran with a toothpick.
Step 2: Cut out small circles to make petals
Cut out 8 circles for the flower (4 blue and 4 silver). In my example, the circles are 4 centimeters in diameter (1,5748″).
Step 3: Use an iron
Preheat the iron. You will use it to make unusual petals for a flower. First, place the round blank, shiny side up, on the heated iron. Wait until the circle begins to rise.
Step 4: Form a petal
Start by forming a petal. Fold the circle in half with the shiny side inside and then fold one half at an angle. You can get such a petal from the blue glitter foam.
Step 5: Form all the petals
Do the same with other round pieces. All the petals should be the same. In total, you will need to make 8 blanks for the flower.
Step 6: Glue the petal to the circle
Collect all the petals on a circle cut out of white felt. Its diameter should be 4 cm (1,5748”). Fix the first blue petal with hot glue.
Step 7: Glue the second petal to the circle
The next petal will be silver, apply it lightly over the blue petal.
Step 8: Glue all the petals
Continue to glue all 8 petals one by one with the glue gun.
Step 9: Using rhinestones
Decorate the center of the flower with a decorative rhinestone.
- blue and silver glitter foam;
- a circle of white felt;
- decorative rhinestones.
- glue gun.
According to this principle, you can make flowers from various foam, and then use them as a decorative element of any jewelry.
