Peony or Anenome?

...either way difficult to spell but easy to make...


I used the Tim Holtz tattered Flowers die and this double sided patterned paper...and at  70p a sheet it won't break the bank.Cut 4 in the large flower for the top, 4 smaller flowers for the centre and 4 large flowers for the lower layer in a contrast patterned paper

Fold each flower in half and then quarters... use a hot glue gun to glue together, this is quicker than using wet glue (if you use wet glue use a peg to hold until dry).

You may have to tear some petals to make them lie flat...Curl your petals

Punch a circle... glue one set of four flowers to the circle. Glue the smaller flowers inside this set of four.Turn the flower upside down and glue the contrast flowers to the circle..the petals should curl in the opposite direction.

Make a hole in the centre... push a piece of florists wire through, bend the end.

Secure with hot glue and add aflat back gem..

Peony or anenome.... you decide.
