Simple Sugar Flower Tutorial

Describe 'Simple Sugar Flower Tutorial' here

This is a really easy to make flower. No cutters needed. Easy flower to start learning with step-by-step picture tutorial. My Sugar Flowers giveaway is still open until 4/28/13.

You will need:
Gum paste
wires (I used white wrapped wires the ones from Walmart)
tooth pick
pointy tool or use like a pen
optional: green and pink color dust or shimmer
stamens (I used store bought)
You can make the stamens your self. To make em: take a thread and dip it with white glue then run your fingers truth. Cut the threads, gather em into a bundle and attach to the wire.

Take a small piece of Gum paste. Make rectangular round shape. It's about 3/4 of an inch.

Make a funnel with a pointy tool. Use corn starch for the tip so it wont stick.

Make it like this.

Cut into 5 equal petals.

Then make the edges of the petals round with scissors.

This is the fun part:)
Take the tooth pick and start shaping petals. Gently roll out a stack of each petal. Pull gently each petal from the middle with tooth pick like in the picture. Then make a line in the middle to give a petal shape.

You can leave em white. I used pink shimmer powder.

Make a small hook with the wire.

Dip it into water then stick it in the flower bottom.

Stick the stamens in dip em in water first.

Optional: brush green color on the bottom of the flower.

Stick em into the styrofoam to dry.
