Simple mini flower tutorial

Here is a simple flower tutorial for those in a hurry... no punches or ink required.

All you will need is 4 store bought paper flowers - 2 tiny ones and one small one for the flower, then another small green one for the leaves... plus glue, water to mist and a pen or pencil.

Step 1: glue a tiny flower to the small one and let dry.

Step 2: Lightly water mist the single and double layer flowers then cup and roll around the end of your pencil. Let dry.

Step 3: Pinch the single flower to create your center.

Step 4: Glue the center into the double layer cup and then the "leaves" flower to the bottom.
Seriously, you're done! If you like these flowers, please leave a message and let me know you stopped by.

This is just to start... I'll be adding so many more cool items in the coming months. Here is a sneak peek at just a few items because there are way too many to show.
