Default A free tute for those of you who have not seen the Carlo Dona thread

I posted a tutorial for the Carlo Dona Bell Flower Press. I don't know how many of you have this awsome tool, but if you want the tutorial, just message me with your email addy and I'll send it to you.

Thanks guys. It's just a tiny tut but it shows the how to's.

Here's what the presses look like. You can find the picture here on the first page.

I'm interested in reading your tut, thanks! Pm'd you!

I'd love to get the tutorial, Cynthia -- I'm dying to know how to do these beads and want to see how it's done before I invest the $$$ for the tool.

Does this press leave a hole for stringing in the top of the flower? I was looking at it wondering that its a beautiful tool. Some day when I win the big one I will have that one lol

No. What it does, is it produces the flower on a wire at the base. The wire can then be looped to hang. So, the flowers hang from the bottom, so you can see the tops of them. Here are a couple of pictures so you can see how the flowers lay.

Hi Starr. The leaves are not a Dona tool. I just have a run of the mill leaf masher for those. Patti, if you haven't already (hard to keep track) just PM me your email and I'll send you one.

Thank you Cynthia,
I received you tutorial this morning. You have me all excited again, now I can add another dimension to something I let slide.
I have used the same vice on flowers and leaves before and found a couple of pictures for general interest. You can see I have wire wrapped the s/steel.
