- Tulle comes in a lot of interesting varieties in addition to the stiff net-like material we are used to. You can find it with glitter, an iridescent sheen, pearls attached and in a rainbow of colors and metallics.
- Cut circles from the tulles you want to layer for your flower. They do not have to be perfect circles but can be if you want – just use a die to cut them out.
- Take your lighter and carefully and quickly run it along the edges of your circles. This will seal them and also give your flat circle a bit of dimension.
- Run glitter glue around the edges of some or all of your layers if you want.
- Use liquid glue and apply tiny dots to some of the layers to glue seed beads on if you want.
- Use glue dots to adhere your layers and your flower center.
