The tutorial used a staple in the middle to hold it together but I just made this thing. 20 gauge jewelry I think Cut into small pieces, create a little loop with pliers and pinch it to secure it.
Lay your pieces out on a work surface and paint one side whatever color you choose/like.
Crumple each piece careful not to tear it, undo crumple it then paint another layer/coat of the same color or even a different color on the first side.
Let it dry all the way and repeat on the other side of each piece. For me, One side had two layers of the same color then I turned it over and painted it two layers of another color that went well with it. Its okay if it bleeds through to the other side.
When everything is 100% dry stack the petals in a pile all in the same color, poke a hole in the middle [i used the pointy part of my compass] and put the wire holder thing in the hole and used my pliers to create another loop and get it as close to the middle as you can without ripping or tearing the petals.
Crumple each layer at a time in a bunch until you have one of these....
I'm really proud of how well they turned out. =)
I'm probably going to make more tomorrow and maybe use them to decorate another aluminum can I'm using for my scissors, compass and glitter glue pens. Ill see how it looks and if I'm happy with it ill post some pictures.
