Power to the Petal!

This flower makes me giggle and when I giggle over a project I know it's a winner and I want to share it with all who care to see it...maybe even those that don't! This flower finished is about 24" wide! I plan on trying it on a smaller scale as well and with a double sided paper so I can flip the corners and show off the under side of the pedals as well. To make this flower you will need....
Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
Floral Stem Wire
10 sheets of 12x12 printed paper
After you have the assembled all of your petals and let them dry stack the petals in a pile outside petals in the back and center petals on top. Twist wires together to connect petals. Spread pedals apart and manipulate them until you have your desired flower. Since you have already weathered you paper it will be easier to manipulate the paper and the wire will help the petals keep the shape you desire.
