Design Team: Debi Tullier Week 12 Term 3

Spring Fling UTEE Flower Embellishments

We are missing a green thumb, so we are thrilled to see all these lovely flower projects by our sweet Debi Tullier! See how she will make these little flowers last, and last!

Well having a love of flowers has lead me to experiment with making paper flowers a little bit more lasting. I have seen so many lovely flower projects. I decided to try to coat my flower with UTEE to see if I could use them for other use such as earrings, buttons, and other uses. I love paper now and love the looks of it. (especially the Signify Pink paper packs) So I began my experiment.

  • Craftwell eCraft Die Cutting System
  • Signify Pink Glimpses Spring Fling
  • SVGcuts Bachelor Button File
  • Ranger Melting Pot
  • Ranger Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel
  • Thread and a needle
  • metal stylus for handling hot media
Just a reminder..
SignifyPink – Glimpse’s paper line is the best. They are selling out on some of their best paper packs and accessories right, so get on over to their site Right NOW!
Wholesalers - Don’t have a wholesale account yet? They’ll get you set up and fast!
First I cut out my flower files. I love how quickly the
Craftwell eCraft cuts out my projects and allows me time to play with my projects.

I used the Melting Pot to melt the UTEE. I was so excited to see how to make it work.
I have laminated fabric and so this is just as exciting to me.
First thing was a huge mistake. I made up my flower and dipped it into the UTEE. It made a gloppy mess.
Not the separate petals I wanted only a mass of UTEE on the paper pom pom I created.
I decided to try it layer by layer and it worked!!
I formed the petals after dipping each layer in the UTEE.
I used some heavy cotton thread and a large hand needle to construct my layers into flowers.
That way I could use them in sewing and jewelry projects easily.
Now I have some beautiful moisture resistant blossoms to use in my projects.
I love them. I will keep you posted on how I use them in up and coming projects.
See how beautiful the lumpy one is on the craft table top the ones on the paper are so beautiful
you can barely see the UTEE on them. I can’t wait to use them.
Hope your Summer is filled with fun and love,

Aren't those flowers adorable? Imagine a Christmas garland created using this method!
