How To: Flower Seal

Flowers! They look good on your garden, they look good on your hair, they look good on your dress. But do you know that they make good stationery accents or envelope seals too? So today let me show you just how to do that. 😉

Actually, this post is another throwback! If you are getting tired of throwbacks, don’t worry because I only have a few of them left… around 3-4 posts. Yay! 😀 After which, I would have to devote more love, time and effort to bring new newer tutorials. Yay! 😀

Last 2013, I made the wedding invitations for a friend wherein I decorated the seal of the envelope with 3D flowers to complement the invitation which was bordered with roses and hydrangea, which is also the theme of their wedding and the composition of the bride’s would be bouquet. 🙂

And here are the quick steps:

1. Using EK Success’ 2.25 Scalloped Circle large puncher, I punched out the shape from light green cardstock to use as my background.

2. Using Bigshot and Sizzix 3D flowers die, I cutout pink felt and created a big pink rose with it. This is the technique I used for rolling up the flower, it’s the easiest technique I found out there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgAn8bvXGoY

3. I then punched out and crumpled tiny blue flowers using my Carl Craft small flower punch. Then stuck them on top of a big lump of glue for dimension to look similar to a hydrangea.

4. After that, I stuck the rose on one side (a bit closer to the center) of the green scallop, making it seem like it’s surrounded by the hydrangea flowers.

5. Then I stuck the bottom side of the green scallop into the center of the envelope.

It’s that simple and here are the photos:

Hmmm… so if yesterday you created a notecard with a pretty butterfly, how about complementing it with 3D flowers for the envelope? 😉
