Materials:

  • Smoothfoam 12" x 1" Disc
  • Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue Pen
  • Old Magazines
  • Buttons - various sizes, shapes and colors
  • Scissors
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Foam sponge
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Double-faced satin ribbon in green
  • Tape measure or ruler

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut out petals.  Carefully cut or tear out magazine pages.  As orange is my color-du-jour, I chose pages with that color plus a few in shades of green. Vertically fold the magazine page in half.  Fold it the same way again.  With each petal cut, you will automatically get 3 more due to the folding of the paper.  I chose to make my petal round at the top and tapered at the bottom.  If you would rather have a daisy look to your flower, make the top of the petal pointed.  The key here is that each petal has tapered bottom and is approximately 2" tall. For a slightly rustic look and to add a bit more texture, lightly crumple the petals in your hands.
     
  2. Glue petals to the button.  Pinch in the paper at the tapered end of the petal.  Add a few dots of glue and place on the back of the button.  Each flower should have 5-6 petals. To keep the buttons from sticking to your craft table, place them on a piece of  aluminum foil and allow to dry.
     
  3. Paint Smoothfoam disc.  Squirt some paint onto the foil and paint one side and the edges.  Allow to dry.  Paint the other side and allow to dry.
     
  4. Add ribbon loop.  Cut a 24" piece of ribbon.  Glue ends together.  Allow to dry.  Glue to top of disc.  Allow to dry.
     
  5. Glue down flowers.  Arrange the flowers on the disc.  Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, add a few dots of glue to the center of the back of each flower and press into place on the disc.  Allow to dry.
