Things you will need:
stylus (small, med. or large)
ink color of your choice
5 petal punch or template ( how to make a template shown at http://www.card-making-magic.com/ )
glue gun and glue sticks or wet glue which ever you prefer
foam pad ( I make my using 1/4 foam and piece of felt ) or old soft mouse pad.
Skewer or toothpick
2. Cut your flower petal as shown above.
4. You want to start shaping your petals. I start with the center, then with small stylus I do the back side edges of the petals, turn it back over and continue to shape petals. I use a skewer to turn the edges under as shown in image above.
5. Start to layer your petals.............the first 3 are relatively flat and you want to off set each layer. The 4 layer you want to cup it more and the last one you want it to be more of a bud. I use the hot glue gun to adhere the petals together slightly overlapping so it starts to cup. The more you over lap your edges the more of a cup shape you'll get.
