Curly flower tut

Hi everyone! I love making flowers and the one I make a lot is a curly flower...I am not the original designer of this flower, I saw it by CraftBrulee on YouTube and changed it just a little bit to suit what I needed.

To make this flower you will need
2 - 6 or 5 petal die cut flowers (you can use the tattered flowers die by Tim Holtz but I used my cricut Flower Shoppe cart)
2 - 9 or 10 petal flower

1 skewer or small paint brush
1 foam piece like from your brads come in
hot glue
pencil with an eraser on the end

1 - taking your scissors cut each petal on your 6 petal flowers so its a little bit longer like this, being careful not to cut too deep

2 - ink the edges of each petal

3 - fold each petal in half

4 - fold the petal back like you do a paper airplane

5 - when you are done your flowers will look like this

6 - using your paintbrush or skewer roll each petal one forward and one back

7 - when you are done it will look like this

8 - using the foam place you first 6 petal flower on down using the eraser end of your pencil so it forms a bit,

9 - add some hot glue, and add your second 6 petal flower so the petals are alternating and push down with your eraser end of your pencil

10 - add your first 9 petal flower leaving the center a little open and glue down

11 - add your second flower to the center of the first curly flower and add a little ink to the top if you would like

your flower is done!

here is a layout I created using these flowers and this months wonderful ScrapThat! kit!
