Love Pleated Blossom

Another handmade flower for today:

Love Pleated Blossom

It's pretty easy to do, wish I had a tripod on my camera and I could do a video/tutorial, real hard without one, and making individual photo steps takes so long...but anyways...just simply punch out 9 circles with a circle punch. Make 1 circle a medium circle and the other 8 circles smaller ones.

Love Pleated Blossom closeup

Use hot glue or glossy accents and gently glue a tip of each small circle together. Press and hold. Make 8 of them. See how they look like petals. You can gently shape them further with your fingers. The 1 circle that is medium sized is used to adhere the others onto it. Leave the petals just slightly off and over the edge of the medium circle, place individually until you get the look you want.

For the tiny little flower in the center, I just used a store bought one to complete the look.

And just a couple more I made:
