Circle Flower Tutorial

The idea for this tutorial came to me whilst making the roof to a lighthouse for our junk model island at school!
The supplies - 3 circle dies (these are sizzix ones) or punches or cut your own circles!  PVA glue (or your glue of preference), scissors, ink for edging the circles, some 3D foam pads and a cocktail stick- sorry not in this picture.

Cut out your 3 circles - mine are in K and Co Wild Saffron paper

Ink the edges of the circles and then cut a slit into the middle

Ink the edges of each of the circles and then use the cocktail stick to role the edges of the paper under
 This is what the circle should look like with the edges curled down
 Next where the slit is overlap the two sides by about 1cm - use the PVA to stick it together.
 Do this to all three circles
 Then push the centres down - this is so that the flower will layer better together and also it is slightly flatter for your page or card :)
 All 3 layers appropriately squashed then use 3D foam to stick them all together
 Place a button in the middle and this is the end result
I hope you enjoyed that - if you have a go at making any then please leave me a link as I would love to see them in action.
