Kathryn shows how to Glimmer Mist silk flowers for an additional decoration in scrapbooking. In this tutorial, she uses the Red Velvet and Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist colors. The flower is made with strips of silk. The strips should be cut to your own desire. Using a white gel pen, trace circles onto black paper, which will be the center of the flower. Use a dye to add color to the strips of silk. Before beginning this process, place the strips on a piece of foil to make sure the spray does not get everywhere. Then add the glimmer mist to the edges of the strip. Take a large glass pebble and glue it to a piece of paper and then set this aside to dry. To create the ruffled edge, adhere some tape to the silk strips as you are pleating the strips. The tape is used to make sure the pleats stay in place. Adhere the strips to the black circle and then take the circle with the glass pebble on top and glue it to the center. Follow these techniques to learn how to make simple silk flowers for scrapbooks.
