To make this hyacinth, you cut a piece of light paper, in my case I used mulberry paper. And I didn't have purple of any sort so I painted my ivory with Cosmic Shimmer's Cloud Ink in a purple shade.
Cut a piece of paper 6 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide. Measure 3/8ths of an inch on one of the long sides, then hand cut 1/8" wide cuts down to the 3/8" mark all the way along. Curl the cuts and set aside. Cut out another piece of paper for the stem, 2" by 6" and roll that on a diagonal to form the stem. I used "Flake and Glitter" glue so when I was rolling the stem and the hyacinth I had time to play with. Roll the stem then roll the hyacinth on an angle around the stem.
For the leaves cut a piece 2" by 3" and accordion fold back and forth at 1/4" folds. Then cut out a leaf on one of the folded sides. Roll this around the stem on an angle and voila a cute hyacinth to adorn your spring card. I used the Marianne Design cutting sheet (IT591) in the center.
Always learning, always exploring.
Until next time,
