Core’Sages–Tutorial Tuesday!

February 8, 2011 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Queen & Co.

So do you want to see our Make-n-Takes from CHA???   They were so CUTE and everyone loved them. They really showed off Core’dinations Cardstock and how versatile it is.   So bust our your Fiskars Paper Crimper and let’s get started.  And we want to give a huge shout out to Glue Arts for supplying us with the Extreme Adhesive Glue Squares for this. They worked brilliantly!

Hats off to Design Team Member Lydia Jackson for this awesome idea and Tutorial!

Steps to create Flower:

1. On the back of a 3×3 piece of cardstock draw a loose spiral.

2. Then tear the spiral shape, tearing away from your body.

3. Sand the torn edges of the flower to make them look antique

4.  Using petal roller or quilling tool, roll flower from the inside edge of the outer ring of the swirl

5.  When you get the the center circle, remove the flower from the tool.

6. Place an Glue arts adhesive square on the center circle and push the flower into it to hold.

Steps for Creating the Leaf:

1. Fold green cardstock in half.

2. Run it through a paper crimper on a 45 degree angle.

3. Cut  (or Tear) a half leaf shape along the fold.

4. Unfold and sand the textured side.

5 Adhere leaves to the bottom of your flower.

Voila you have a beautiful Core-sage!

  12. Krista says:

    The first technique I learned to make spiral roses seemed to be a challenge and the flowers were tiny. Thus, I have made very few. Seeing your tutorial gave me the interest to try again. Thank you. Here is what I made. The red roses are made from core’dinations cardstock. I love the way the paper tears and creates a realistic flower.

    Your flower is great, I wondered how it was done, saw it on a couple other web sites, but they never showed how to do it.
    thank you.

  14. Krista says:

    Ellen, thanks for looking at my post above. I have happily altered my post to send folks to this tutorial. Some have suggested I make a video. But Core already did so. It was YOUR idea!!
    Thanks again for the support.

    So going to make these …they are sooo stinkin’ cute!!

  16. Elizabeth P says:

    Wow ! I made a flower similar in technique with a scalloped circle on plain cardstock. It was pretty – – but now I simply must make this exact project from the tut ! Love Core’dinations !!!!

  17. CK Chai says:

    The rose is so much gorgeous with the tearing effect when compared to my previous trial with cutting the spiral and thanks for sharing such an awesome tutorial!

  18. Andie says:

    Kewl you should come up with that. Exleclnet!

  19. One thing about flower embellishments aside from the fact that they make adorable designs they are easy to make. Plus it could go with any theme, vintage, summer or etc as long as you use the right color and type of paper. Great tutorial. 🙂
