Today is all about flowers. Specifically, flowers that can be made using your Silhouette®. For today’s challenge post, I made vellum flowers. Vellum peony flowers. I wasn’t sure what a real peony looks like. Maybe I should have “googled” it before I made these flowers. Maybe I would have done them differently, but then again maybe not. I kinda like my vellum flowers just as they are….I mean my vellum peonies.
Back to the flowers. Are you a flowers person? I mean, I know everyone likes flowers. I love flowers. I just can’t identify them. Of course I know what roses and daisies look like. But much beyond that, I’m clueless.
I’m the same way with plants. I know what I like when I see different varieties of flowers and plants, but I have no idea what they are. Maybe I’m this way because my mother didn’t garden. She didn’t plant flowers or plants. I remember her saying she didn’t like to touch dirt. Well, I guess you can’t be a gardener if you don’t like to touch dirt, right?
I have gardening gloves. But I’m still not a gardener. Maybe I’ll take up gardening when I retire.
If you would like to make these peony flowers, the cut file that I used is available in the Silhouette® Online Store. It’s called 3D Peony (Design ID #56220). By the way, if you don’t already have a subscription to the On-line Store, I highly recommend it. I’ve had a subscription every since I got my first Silhouette (an SD) about six years ago. It is so worth it. Especially if you’re like me and your graphic design skills are somewhat lacking ; )
I used the Silhouette® vellum to make my flowers.
I did the same things for the remaining petals. And because I rarely leave a design the way it comes, I made more petals in different sizes just by selecting them and decreasing the size.
Once I had cut all my petals, I just inserted them onto a bamboo skewer, starting with the largest size petals. The yellow stamen is cut from card stock.
Since you’re now (hopefully!) in a Silhouette® flower-making mood, here are more Silhouette® flowers projects that I found in the archives of Create & Babble:
