"Fish Tail" Flowers

The inspiration to create this flower came to me while I was watching a Japanese show. There's a lot of designs or logos of fish tails in that show which had gave me this idea.

To create your own "Fish Tail" Flower, simply follow the steps below.


1. First, cut out circles of different sizes from pattern papers. I've used two pattern papers and a vellum to do my layers above.

2. Then cut a "u" into various sections of the circle. It will create some petals on each circle.

3. Lightly fold the petals in halves and snip a "v" on the folded edge. This will give you the "fish tail" petals.

4. Lastly, to create some depths in them, I've inked on the pattern paper layers and heat embossed on the vellum layer. Then layered them to get your "Fish Tail" flower.


I love how the flower had turned out. I hope you all would give it a try too!
