I had some red tissue paper lying around, actually 3 different ones, one was waxy and all 3 were different shades of red.
I folded the tissue and cut 2 different sized circles with my Spellbinders. The advantage of tissue paper is that you can cut several layers at once. I tried a punch, but it just ripped the paper.
I folded the circles in 4 and then cut some waves on the edges to get an irregular shape, rather than just a circle.
Then I stacked up to 8 (4 small on top of 4 larger circles) and punched a hole with my Cropadile in the middle.
I then stuck a big brad in the middle, just an ordinary one from the stationers 'cause you can't see it at all when the flower is finished.
Then I sprayed Glimmer Mist on the circles, just lightly so it is moist, and started scrunching up the inner layers upwards. A bit fiddely, but the end effect is lovely. You can work it as much as you like.
I used Olive Vine Glimmer Mist to colour the white felt.
Stay tuned, I 'll be making some cards with these lovelies.
