Check these funky flowers out!

I am totally loving these beautiful funky flowers by Ellen Woodbridge on The Mystical Blog
To start your Flower you will need to pick out some patterned paper. I have used 4 6×6 sheets for mine. 12×12 paper or some scrap pieces will also work.
Image
Next we need cut some circles from the paper. Circle size are 4½”, 4”, 3”, 2 ½”
Image
To make the petals cut slits around in the edge of the circles, but not all the way into the middle.
Image
Now roll the edge of each petal with a skewer. You can roll the edges as little or as much as you like. Do this for all your circles.
Image
As my paper was not double sided I inked the rolled edges of all the circles using a sponge. You may wish to skip this step.
Image
Now grab some Kindyglitz or glue and glitter and add this to the straight and rolled edges of your petals. To give them some sparkle. Set aside to dry.
Image
You are now ready to assemble your flower. Use foam adhesive to assemble you flower it will also separate the layers.
Image
All you have left is to add a brad or button the centre of your smallest circle and you are done. Your funky flower is now ready to use on a Layout or
card.
