UTEE Paper Flowers by Carol Fox


 
 

 

Step 1
 

 
 

Cut your flower shapes. I cut mine using the Tim Holtz Flower Garland die, but if you don’t have a die cutting machine, cut your shapes by hand.

 

Step 2
 

 
 

Melt copper and clear UTEE in your melt pot and dip your flower shapes into the melted UTEE, carefully remove them and lay them on your craft mat.

 

Step 3

 
 


 
Reheat the UTEE covered flowers and gently press a rubber stamp into the melted UTEE, repeat until you have enough flower shapes.

 
Step 4

 

 
 
 
Use a selection of Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Wax to colour your shapes, rubbing it gently over the surface to highlight the raised areas of the UTEE.
 
Layer the shapes up to make the flowers as shown in the main photo.

 

I used:
