Hi and welcome back to Heavenly Craftings today’s tutorial is a very simple Child friendly one.
You only need a few Materials and the results will amaze you. This is a great way to recycle old books that are just lying around. Great for both the environmentally conscious crafter and the budget crafter.

So let’s get to it.
An old romance novel
A die cutting machine
Assorted Distress Re-Inkers
A plate or shallow container
A water mister
Arrange as many as you can and then cover with the book paper and cut them out. Do this until you have a nice pile of flowers
Push down on the flowers to allow them to absorb all the ink.
Allow them to soak up the ink for a few minute
Turn the flowers over and mist them generously again
Push down on the flowers
Allow to dry overnight or place in small batches in a box and dry with your heat gun
These make great rolled roses, scrunched flowers or individual blossoms.
