Foam Flower Tutorial - Cala Lily

Handmade Photoframe
Dear friends thank you so much for the wonderful sweet comments on my previous post of handmade foam flowers.The foam cala lilies were so easy to make that I whipped up some more and added them to a handmade photoframe
Handmade Foam flowers
Added Marianne die cut leaves and pink punchcraft roses to mellow out the purple Cala lilies.[The gorgeous white flowers are a gift from blogger friend Jovi]
I feel so happy when I get requests for tutorials and extremely thrilled when one of my tutorials is appreciated or put to use !!
Here is the  Cala Lily foam flowers tutorial
Materials required
Foam-you can get foam sheets in A 4 or large chart paper size sheets and in different thickness.I found that cala lilies are best made with the thinner type of foam sheet.
To cut the Foam :use scissors, dies or foam punches .
To make the Cala Lily Petal : Cut foam into rough hearts.If you are hand cutting  the hearts dont obsess about getting a perfect heart shape as it doesnt really matter for the final appearance of your foam flower
Foam flower tutorial
To make the Cala Lily Center : I used Amos playdough as it dries without cracking and is super lightweight so ideal for paper crafting. You can also experiment with a paper mache type roll, paper rolled on a tooth pick or even a ear bud[Q tip] dipped in paint like I did in this post :Pop up card tutorial [yes you read right..I did use a slim ear bud for those paper cala lilies!! We ENT surgeons dont recommend using ear buds in the ear but I had some lying around so crafted with them!!]
I got the idea for the heart shape and the play dough center from some pins I had pinned here : Flower Making tutorials.
To make the Cala Lily Stem - use floral wire/other wire you have ; tooth picks, skewers, ear buds , paper rolls or even a used ball point pen refill![More recycling ideas welcome!]
To Glue it all together- If you are the patient sort use white glue[Fevicol]Otherwise ..I found the hot glue gun the quickest and easiest option for making these cala lily foam flowers.
Foam flower tutorial
Roll a pea sized ball of playdough  into a tapered rod and insert thin floral wire nearly to the center of the rod.Place it on the center of your inverted foam heart and apply a dot of hot glue on the playdough right at the base as shown in the photo of the foam flower tutorial
Foam flower tutorial
Fold over one half of your petal. Apply another dot of glue at its base as shown and fold over the other half. If you are happy with this shape then your cala lily is ready otherwise fold over the top edges of the cala lily and optionally add a teeny bit of glue to hold in place. [I found some flowers retained the fold even without any gluing!]
Sharing how I made some easy leaves you can add to any project.
Leaf tutorial
Die cut,Punch [caution: punches and glitter paper usually dont get along] or Freehand cut leaves .I freehand cut some leaves from Itsy Bitsy Glitter card stock
Leaf tutorial
Place floral wire on the base of the leaf ,apply glue and stick waxed floral tape over it.Roll the floral tape on the wire to make a leaf and branch or add it to your foam cala lily flower.
Cala Lily tutorial
I can be crazy stingy at times and try to save the weirdest of stuff...the above photos show how I saved floral tape[Not because they are expensive...I just love floral tape too much to waste it!!] by wrapping my cala lily and leaf wires together and using the leaf's floral tape to make a stem!! Ha Ha do any of you get these crazy drives to save craft supplies....?
The photo shows the Foam Flowers card I had shared earlier along with my handmade photoframe

The photoframe is an altered old desktop calendar.Most of my readers have seen lots of examples of my recycling handmade photoframes but for my new readers here are DIY photoframe tutorials
The crystal flower on the photoframe is another easy to make handmade flower and here is the tutorial link : Crystal flower tutorial

I made a collage for my pinterest readers to easily pin the Cala Lily foam flower tutorial.
