Flower Tutorial

Good Morning Everyone!!!
.
I had a project I created for Emma's Paperie this last week that I wanted to share with you.
.
.
It is amazing what you can do with a little bit of paper and Stickles. Oh how I love my Stickles! :) You can create one of these flowers too by following these steps. (Please forgive the bad lighting)
.
1. Punch or cut three six petal flowers of the same size.
.
2. Fold all three of the flowers in half three times. On the first
flower make a cut between two of the petals to the center. (as shown). On
the second flower cut out one petal. Cut two petals out of the third flower
keeping the two petals connected to form a heart. Do not discard the petals.
.
3. Place a glue dot on the back of one petal adjacent to where you just
cut on each flower. Overlap the two petals to create the flower sections as
shown.
.
4. Use a toothpick or skewer to curl back the petals on each flower
section.
.
5. Cut the pointy ends off of the two smaller sections. (as shown)
.
6. Place a glue dot in the center of the largest flower section. Place
the second largest section inside. Repeat with the smallest section.
.
7. Using the heart shaped piece that was left from one of the flowers,
curl back each of the petals using the skewer or toothpick.
.
8. Flatten one of the sections and then roll to create center of flower
as shown.

.
9. Adhere to the center of the smallest flower section. Roll the
remaining petal as shown.
.
10. Add glitter to the edges of the flower and cut leaves for the flower.
.
You can find all the supplies for this project on the Emma's Paperie blog.
.
Also don't forget to stop by Creative Charms this week. This is the last week to have a chance to get your hands on the August Deal of the Month!
.
Have a fabulous Wednesday!

That is such a CUTE goody jar, Lisa! I love the ribbon and buttons around the lid and all the gorgeous detailing on the top. That flower is stunning. I just tried that kind for the first time a few days ago....but I did not do the very center part quite correctly, I believe. I think your tutorial has straightened me out on that, so THANK YOU!
Glad you are getting a ton done now the kiddos are back to school. I don't think I got as much done yesterday as one would hope. My DD asked me what I did all day, and my answer sounded kinda lame to me.....like what did I do with all the rest of the time? Well, I went grocery shopping, and I went into work for awhile..........and? and?
hmmmm.......
I hope I get more done today.:)
