Default Sissix Bigz Die - Flowers 3-D 65645

I just purchased this beautiful Die. I cut it out but what do you do use for actually 'making' the flower. I used a pair of tweezers but it kept unravelling on me. Also, do you pull tight on the flower? Gosh, as you can see I need all the help I can get with this one - LOL. Also what adhesive do you use for holding it together. Am I just putting the adhesive at the base of the flower? I find my cardstock is a little too heavy, but maybe with practice (and I know I need a lot of this) I'll pull out a beautiful flower.

THANKS so much. I'd be lost without this site..

I don't know this die. Does it make a Spiral. If it does can you use a Quilling tool that has a slot in it( to wind Quilling strips)and wind the paper. Try using thinner paper and maybe use Ailenes Tack It glue at the end and at the base.

Hey there, go to Youtube and type in the name of your die. There are quite a few about the Sizzix flower dies, but I don't know which specific one you have.

There are great tutorials there and you can see how to assemble your flower, and what kind of adhesive and where to attach it.

I have a few dies that start as a spiral, YouTube is brilliant for tutorials, they are very fiddly though and every one of mine turns out slightly different.
