To bend in the wind like the Tulip

EDIT: I HAD TO TAKE DOWN THE TUTORIALS SINCE THEY WERE BEING DISTRIBUTED WITHOUT MY CONSENT, FOR PROFIT. I MAY COMPILE THEM LATER TO BE A PDF FILE FOR DOWNLOAD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. 


Did you know that the famous Holland Tulips are not originally from Holland? Yeah, me neither! Apparently they originated from the area around Greece, Turkey and Afganistan.

One day, in the 16th century, the Tulip arrived in the Netherlands and started Tulipmania (lol) Some varieties of tulips cost more than a house! Insane. It was such, that having fresh Tulip(s) in your house was equal to having a BMW or Mercedes in your garage.

Well, now you can make them out of cardstock!


The diecut for this flower is simple. An egg shape. I took mine from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Now, since I wanted Orange tulips and I don't have an orange ink pad, I cut them out on yellow cardstock.



I added two leaves, on on each side.


And now you have a tulip!

Stay tuned for tomorrows conclusion of this flower series, and the fun givaway!

Thanks for looking
