You can find all the products you need at the Crafts and Me Stamps store here.
Here's what you'll need to start:
Computer Mouse Pad
Punch Bunch Paper Crafting Tools Kit (includes tweezers, embossing tips and more!)
Fine Tip Scissors
Medium Cosmos Punch
Medium Birch Leaf Punch
Mini Sun Punch
Clear-drying Wet Glue
Optional: Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue
For your Aster, punch:
4 Medium Cosmos
3 Medium Birch Leaves
3 Mini Suns
Cut rays of all 3 Suns in half.
Cut one sun through to its center.
Hold sun with tweezers on one side of cut line and place a tiny bit of wet glue on other side of cut line. To cone this sun, guide sun between thumb and finger of free hand while slowly twirling tweezers away from the cut line to glued end and hold for a few seconds to secure edge.
|Example of coned Mini Sun|
Veins can be added to leaves by folding one side of each leaf over the tweezers tip. Turn the leaf over and press embossing tip firmly onto leaf over hard surface to add additional thinner veins.
Small amounts of clear-drying wet glue can be added to pieces to begin layering.
Adhere flower base to leaves. When layering flowers, offsetting the petals provides more fullness to your flowers.
Use minimal amounts of glue to layer your mini suns, offsetting rays, lastly adding your coned sun to the center.
Your completed handmade Aster will be ready to embellish your projects in just a few minutes when the glue has dried. For a magical glow, paint a very thin and light layer of Diamond or Star Dust Stickles over each layer for glorious sparkle.
