- Aleene's Tacky Dot singles
- Aleene's tacky double stick sheets
The first one made by cutting out four wavy circles. After cutting them I tried to curl the edges in a little and I used an ink pad to antique the edges of each layer. I used Aleene's Tacky Dot singles to hold the layers together and to attach it to the present. I love glue dots for paper crafting. They are easy and clean.
For the second flower I cut a long strip of paper with pinking shears. Then I cut slits down the entire strip and rolled it. I cut a small square of Aleene's tacky double stick sheets for this one and planted the flower on it. Both sides are sticky, so it essentially makes your flower a sticker to use when you want to.
I added a few paper leaves just to add a little something.
For the last flower I took a scalloped paper punch and cut out two of the circles. I antiqued the edges of both and cut slits in the top one, curling the edges inwards a bit. Then I made a smaller circle to go on top of it. I used the tacky dots on this one as well.
