Carefully cut off the circles. I trimmed all the cirles off and got two flowers out of the deal:
Cut or punch a circle out of cardstock or the patterned paper, about 2" in diameter (or whatever size you want!). Then glue the pieces down in a spiral starting on the outside edge:
Finished it with a Prima e-line pearl in the center and glued it to my cover.
Even had enough left over to make a second smaller one for the inside:
For this one, I used a circle from the corner as the base and glued the smaller circles in a tiny little spiral. So easy!
These flowers are so cute and could easily be repeated with any piece of patterned paper and a small circle punch. I can only imagine how fabulous these flowers would look using the turquoise side of this piece of patterned paper from the Webster's Seaside Retreat collection:
Or the pink plaid patterned paper from the Webster's Lullabye Lane collection:
Happy chrysanthemum making!
PS - If you make one, please share it with us. We'd love to see it!!
