Super Simple Embellishment!

 Yes folks, you can embellish a box a bag a card, just about anything with these circle flowers!
They are quick and easy to put together! Thanks to Nikki Toll for showing me how to make them at her flower class last month.
As you see in the photo, all I needed was a glue gun, a scoring tool and a silicone craft sheet.  You will also need 2 strips of scrap paper 12" long, and 1/2" to however thick you want to create these.  The flowers in this photo were made with 1 1/2" strips.
You then take these strips of paper and score at 1/4" to or 1/2" intervals the entire length of the strip.
I tried 1/4" and 1/2" and I prefer 1/2".
Heat up your glue gun, fold your strip of paper at each score over lap and secure each of the ends of the strips so you end up with a big circle.  Lay the circle down on the silicone craft sheet and hold into the shape of the tight circle.  Put hot glue in the middle and hold until it tries, and then peel off the silicone sheet flip over and put a little hot glue in the center of the flower on the other side.  Now you can glue a button or whatever else you would like to finish off the middle and there you have it! All done!
Soooo easy!  I must also say that this new silicone craft sheet is wonderful!  Your hot glue will peel right off when dried!
 (Scoring tool and Silicone Craft pad are Stampin Up tools-which you can earn for free by hosting a workshop! Contact me for details)
Hope you have had a great week!
Be inspired to create!

  1. Cute embellishment. I tucked my glue gun and glue sticks away last year during a clean up and now I can't find it. :/ Have a great weekend. Tammy
