I am on a journey
1. Cut strips of paper to loop for the petals. My strips measure 1cm wide and 3", 2.5" and 2" long. Also cut a circle of cardstock to use as a base. Using these lengths my finished flower is quite large and measures approx 4.25" across.
2. Using the longest strips bend each of the strips in half and secure - do not fold, you want the loop. I used a hot glue gun but glue dots or quick drying Helmar 450 would work just as well.
5. Bend the next size of strips into loops. Attach them between the large petals.
6. Round the ends off the smallest strips and attach them between the last layer of petals. Alternatively you could loop these petals and glue them down, but I found it was a bit fiddly for my hot glue covered fingers.
