      Ok here is goes…hope you girls like them. These are really easy to make and if you just try one you will see that. Here is the supply list:
      Cardstock
      Skewer stick
      Glue – I use my glue gun
      Inks
      Glimmer mist or perfect pearls mist
      Gems or Stickles, something for the centers of the flowers

      First you need to cut out six petals, I use my cricut but you can use what you have to punch out the flowers.

        Next step is to ink around the edges of the petals a bit. then I mist the petals with water. You take the skewer and roll the petals towards you and pinch them at the same time. They will look like this after this step is done.

          I then pinch and twist each petal and after that is done I ink the twisted part just a bit more. Now you can let them dry for about 15 minutes or so but I get impatient and use my heat gun on them so that I can finish them up right away. This is what they look like at this point now.

            The next step is you glue all the petals together, alteating which way each petal goes. I use my glue gun here. Then you just dab a bit of stickles in the center and add a gem or pearl to it. For a nice pearly finish I like to spray the completed flowers with Perfect Pearls or Glimmer mist.

            These take about 10 minutes to make and really they are so simple. I love the look of them. Here is a layout with some of the flowers on it. Have fun πŸ™‚

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                          Thanks, Shona. I think Meg has that one or I could actually take a look at what I have. That's (to me) the one drawback of Cricut, so many images to a cart, it's hard to find the one you want.
