          4. Roll the spiral from the outside in.

          5. Put hot glue at the base of the flower (center of the spiral.) Stick rolled section onto the base. Quickly make any needed adjustments before the glue cools and hardens.

          1. Punch out 5 pink 1" circles, and 5 peach 1/2" circles.

          2. Glue a 1/2" circle to the edge each 1" circle.

          3. Bend the edges of the petal to create a slight point at the opposite end of the 1/2" circle.

          4. Glue the petals together in a circle to create a flower.

          5. Leave half of each petal unattached to the next petal so that it flips upward.

          1. Cut out 14 pink 1 1/2" circles, 1 pink 1" circle and 1 yellow strip measuring 1/4"x8.5".

          2. Cut a slit to the center of each 1 1/2" circle.

          3. Glue 1/4" of either side of the slit on top of each other to add dimension to each petal.

          4. Using the 1" circle as a base, begin gluing petals around the edges with the slits toward the base.

          Note: For this flower I glued 5 flowers on the base and 5 on the second layer. The third layer has has three petals. The remaining petal is used on top for the center of the flower.

          5. Curl the yellow strip by wrapping it around a pencil. Glue the two ends together. Adjust the curls until it looks the way you want it.

          6. Glue the yellow, curled strip to the center of the flower.
