Pressed Petals

One of the most unique products in the new Annual Catalog is the Pressed Petals Washi Tape. This washi tape is actually a roll of flower petals. These are really kind of cool. You can peel off as many petals as you need to make your flower. I found the best way to work with these is to arrange them on a small piece of card stock. I used a 1/2″ circle punch to make my circle. Once you’ve added the petals to your circle, add a bit of baby powder to the back of the petals. The baby powder removes the adhesive. This keeps them from sticking to your card front. If you don’t have baby powder, you could probably use baking powder or flower. 

Here’s the finished card with the flower attached. You can see how the petals still curl up. This is because I added powder to the petal tips. The pattern paper is from the Pressed Petals Suite and is designed to match the washi flower petals. This pattern is absolutely gorgeous with the realism of the flowers and the linen fabric in the background. So gorgeous!

I have to say, I was a little skeptical about a roll of washi tape flowers. But these do turn out absolutely stunning. You’ll definitely want to get both the washi tape and matching pattern paper. Click on the Order Online button on the right and it will take you right to my shop.
