Tutorial for Corn husk Flowers.Now very first Tutorial ! Corn husk flowers can be made in many shapes and sizes ,colors..I am sharing the steps I followed while making these.
1.These are dried corn husks i used .
2.Cut petals .
3.The petals look flat.So give them some dimension by a embossing tool or with fingers.This has to be done gently or the husk will tear off. The petals after embossing look like this...
4.Color the edges you can color full petals also.cut out a small base and fringed flower for center of flower.
5.paste the petals on the base.I used 5 petals for larger flower and 3 for smaller one.
6.To shape the flower place on a sponge and press it at center.
7.Finally paste a fringed flower at center.You can use anything a button,bead.
