Come on over and see how to make die cut paper flowers look real!
Today we are sharing a spectacular project made by Kittie. As many of you know, Kittie has an incredible talent with making die cuts come alive. In a post that she shared on her blog in September, Kittie showed us all her tips for how to make die cut paper flowers look real no matter the type or style.
Kittie’s mom was a florist and she says that being among so many different kinds of gorgeous flowers is part of what inspires her to turn our die cut flowers into arrangements like this one.
Kittie generously shares all her tips and tricks for adding the details to these plain paper pieces to make them just pop off your card. It is well worth going to her original post to see all her steps and accompanying photos to see just how she creates these lush floral elements. Kittie says ” I am telling you honestly – once you learn these easy steps there isn’t a die cut flower you won’t be able to bring to life!” You will learn how to add realistic color, shape and group together all these different elements and did we mention that it’s all free to learn in her post?
Are these realistic die cut paper flowers hard to make? NO! Yes, there’s a lot that goes into making them look so realistic but, as in nature, small imperfections and differences only ADD to the lifelike look. This means that you do not have to worry about “perfection” and can just lean into the fun of coloring and shaping these little flat pieces of paper into gorgeous, pickable blooms.
Here’s what Kittie used today:
