PAPER FLOWER POWER

I love making PAPER FLOWERS because you can get to many different looks just by changing the shape or color.  This flower was made by cutting out the same flower in 9 different sizes. I used the flower found on Cricut Cartridge-Forever Young, page 70, Flower7.  Cut each flower once in the following sizes inch increments: 3, 2 3/4, 2 1/2, 2 1/4, 2, 1 3/4, 1 1/2, 1 1/4 and 1 inch.  The paper I used was from K&Company, Confetti.  Once the flowers have been cut out place a whole in the center of each flower large enough to accommodate a brad that will be used to attach all the petals.   Next, lay your flower out and lightly spray with water to breakdown the paper so it will be more manageable. You made need to spray the front and back depending on the paper used.  While the paper is still damp start adding the smallest flower to the brad (while attaching each flower gather it up towards the brad) until all flower petals have been added.  Secure your brad, and give the whole flower a big scrunch, then slowly start pulling the petal back out from the center.
