Hi!! I'm Marilyn Rivera, I live in Puerto Rico a Tropical island in the Caribbean with my husband Israel(we've been 20 years married) and my two teenagers Alexander and Paola Sofia. I'm a Fashion Designer so during the day I'm surrounded by fabrics, sewing machines, threads and dress forms and when I'm not playing with fabrics, it's with papers...I love to create! My sister Karen introduced me to this beautiful hobby 4 years ago and I Loved it immediately!!!I and now I totally addicted, It's a therapy for me! I design for The Paper Variety, Scrapfit and The Scrapbookchallenges. I love meeting people with the same passion for this hobby, so through my blog I had many friends around the world, feel free to visit me, see my work and let me know where are you from...

The Punk Flower Tutorial by Marilyn

Voy a mostrarles como hice estas flores. Hay muchos tutoriales con diferentes estilos para hacer flores, yo las trabajo de esta manera.

I will show you how I did these flowers. There are many tutorials with different styles to make flowers, I work it in this way.

Materiales: a flower punch- 3 flowers(2 inches) 1flower(1inch), a stick, chalk ink(cat eye), spray bottle fill with water, heat gun.


En la otra flor enrollar los petalos en direccion contraria.
On the other flower roll the petals in the opposite direction.


Debe quedar asi..
It should be like this...


Dobla cada pétalo hacia arriba, como en la foto.
Fold each petal facing up, like in the picture.


Rociarle un poquito de agua.
Spray it with a bit of water.


Dejarlo secar o usa tu heat gun.
Leave it drying or use a heat gun.


Con cuidado dobla los pétalos.
Carefully fold the petals.


Coloca una flor encima de la otra con los petalos doblados en direccion opuesta.
Put one of the flowers on top of the other with the petals folded in opposite direction.


Debe quedar asi..
It should be like this...


Le añadimos la tercera flor y entonces le ponemos el centro de la flor (la flor pequeña).

Add the third flower and then put the center of the flower (the small flower).
