Hi everyone :)
In this post I'd love to share with you, my latest love
Foamiran ( Foam ) Flowers, give you some tips and answer the most common questions.

What is foamiran?
Foamiran is stretchy material (foam) 0,8mm or 0.6mm thick which look a bit like paper, easy to shape when warm. I mention the thickness as this is very important. 
This is a special kind of foam dedicated to flower making.
It's not ordinary craft foam 2mm thick! Which you can buy in crafts stores with products for kids.
Foamiran flowers are handmade flowers made out of foamiran :)
You can buy foam in many colors (at the moment at least 30 colors available) :

What kind of flowers you can make with it, how to color the foam?
- You can make any color, any kind you wish as it's very easy to dye it,
and shape when the foam is warm.
To color the foam you can use any inks, soft or oil pastels, sprays and chalks.
My fav are inks, gelatos ( Faber Castel) and soft pastels.

What do you need to make a foamiran flower:
To make these flowers you will need a foam, iron ( not always), flower center - gem, pearl, button, anything you wish to stick in the middle, scissors and hot glue or nail glue. These are the basic.
I use a lot of white foam as it's very easy to color it :)
You can also use ball tools to help with shaping your flowers and a sponge or foam mat.

I also use dies as I make a lot of foam flowers and it's much quicker with dies.
If you do not have die cutting machine you can cut petals with scissors.

Where to buy foamiran and all other supplies needed?
Foamiran, stamens, tools, flower cutting dies, inks, flower centres available
in 14 Craft Bar they ship worldwide.

Dies for flower making: 
You can use most of dies and punches to make flowers.
It's good to use dies and cut 4 layers of foam at once
as it makes the foam thinner and easier to shape.
Since I have my own line of dies I use them the most - Lady E Design dies

How many flowers can I make from 1 sheet of foamiran?
I make flowers for cardmaking. I usually make a flower which is about 5cm big.
From 1 sheet of foamiran I can make 4 big flowers and few small :)

How to make the flowers:
1. Cut out or die cut the flowers
2. Put on the medium hot iron, turn the steam off.
3. After few seconds release from the iron fold and roll in your fingers until you feel that
the foam is really thin like a paper.
4. Unfold the flower and shape each petal.
5. For one flower you may use 2-3 layers of petals, stick them together with hot glue
6. Make a hole in the middle, put stamens through and secure on the bottom.

There are few techniques how to make flowers and few video tutorials on youtube, here are some of mine, more you can find on my youtube channel HERE:

What to do with foamiran flowers?
