Directions

Cut out all the elements needed to make the bloom.

Using the comb shaped element on the die, die-cut and then coil and securing as you go using a hot glue gun.


Die-cut a selection of different sized petals and and starting off with the smallest, glue them around the edge of the centre. Ensure that the bottom edge of the petal is in line with the bottom edge of the flower centre.


Repeat this process with the medium sized petals and then with the larger petals.The split circle shape on the die is used to create the base of the flower and should be cut from green felt. Stick this with hot glue to the underside of the assembled flower, bringing the split edges together to form a shallow cone. This will neaten the flower off.

Die-cut the leaf shapes and stick this to the underside of the flower using hot glue.

The flower can be made larger or smaller depending on your requirements. Simply use more or less petal layers.
