A flower shaping tool is something that you didn’t know you needed until you tried it. It’s a pencil-like plastic craft tool, much like a bone-folder. You can use it to add shape, curl, and realistic dimension to your paper flower die-cuts.
You can use a pen or pencil to add a bit of shape to your flowers as well, but you don’t get the same impressive results like with the flower-shaping tool. So we highly recommend to add one to your crafty tool kit!
We used the Cardmaking Magic flower-shaping tool on our poinsettia die cuts from the Pretty Quick Create Your Own Wreath Kit. The layered poinsettias are beautiful on their own, but they really come to life with the flower-shaping tool.
