AHi Friend! I believe this is a dogwood blossom.
Looks like magnolia to me. Here's a tutorial if you're interested in making one: http://sugaredblog.blogspot.se/2009/06/southern-magnolias.html
Dogwood blossoms only have 4 petals. Google image magnolia flower.
AAh, good catch MsGF, I am on my cell phone and didn't count petals!
Def. magnolia :-)
I think it looks like magnolias. Here's a youtube tutorial if you like. You don't have to have special cutters for them, I have used my rose cutters and they came out great.
There is also a Craftsy class on southern sugar flowers, if that helps.
Minette Rushing's youtube video is all you need . It is a great one. I make nick lodge's and i have used minette's tutorial also. hth
Wow, thanks for all the replies and also the links for tutorials!!!
