Summer Bouquet {Tutorial}

Detailed Step-by-Step Tutorial Available 

This fresh Summer Bouquet is made completely out of paper and various Stampin' Up! punches and dies.  Sweet pinks, acid greens, rich berries, and deep plums are featured in this gorgeous bouquet.  

Wouldn't this beautiful Summer Bouquet make a perfect bridal bouquet? Or a gorgeous summer centerpiece?  What a lovely hostess gift to bring to a summer dinner party.  Wouldn't you love to make it for someone special?   Now you can!   I have put together a detailed tutorial on how make each of these stunning flowers and how to replicate the bouquet.  The tutorial is in six parts.  Each tutorial gives clear step-by-step instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the the pink Roses, the Razzleberry Ranunculus, the Eggplant Anemones, and the acid green Hydrangea.  Plus there are detailed instructions on how to make the Salal Leaves and Beargrass.  As always,complete instructions on how to assemble the arrangement are also included.  The complete tutorial is 27 pages in length and has 78 photos.  The flowers are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.   It also gives lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make the flowers look real and come to life.

You can purchase the complete six part tutorial for only  $6.95

UPDATE:  (added June 1, 2013):  You are purchasing a tutorial from 2012.  Some of the items used in the tutorial have been discontinued from Stampin' Up!  For the most part, these beautiful flowers can still be recreated using alternate colours and products.

Here is a testimonial from one of my customers: 

"The tutorial looks fabulous!  You've done such a wonderful job of explaining each flower and leaf, and I can hardly wait to give the paper flowers a try.  A couple of times recently I've been disappointed with for-fee tutorials, but certainly not with yours.  I know it was a lot of work for you, and it was worth every penny to me!  Thanks so much for sharing your creativity and for putting together a thorough and well-illustrated tutorial."


P.S.  Did you know that you can earn this tutorial for FREE?  Whenever one of my customers posts a creation that they have made using one of my tutorials and gives credit and a link back to my blog, I always try to send a thank you and a free tutorial :)  It's my way of saying thanks for giving credit where credit is due :).  I do try to keep tab on where referral traffic is coming from, and try to send out a free tutorial without any prompting, but it's not always possible to see every source.  If you post a picture of a creation that you have made using one of my tutorials along with credit and a link, just pop me an email, and I will send you a free tutorial of your choice (with a value of $6.95 or less).  If you've posted a pic with credit and a link, and I've missed you, just send me an email, and I will get your free thank you tutorial out ASAP!

Oh my gosh I thought these were Real! I have purchased your tutorials, sadly I don't get off my duff and build them! I typically run from 3-D but enjoy your creations! Beautiful!


Is there a list of the punches and dies needed? I want to make sure I have most of the stuff first...
