Wishes for You

Today I am going to show you how to make this dimensional flower using the Circle Maker!

Our first step is to punch out 20 large circles and 7 small circles.  I am using the Reflections Designer-Print Paper which is double sided (if you are wanting to use different papers, you will need 10 large circles for the first layer, and 9 large circles for the second layer). 
Note: You will have one extra large circle which is explained below).

Next, we are going to fold each circle into a cone, leaving one large circle for the flower base.  I folded my large circles so 10 with the green side showing and 9 with the gray side showing.  All 7 of my small circles were folded with the green side showing.

 Cover your base with adhesive strips as shown above.

Adhere 10 of the large circles to the base, flatten the bottom of the cones to the adhesive.

Next, adhere the second layer of the large circles, changing colors as shown.

Then add in the third layer with the smaller circles. 

 Using a small paper flower from the Reflections Paper Flowers, attach to the center of the flower using a small foam square.  Add in a small heart using the Silver Metallic Precious Element Fine-Tip Pen then attach your flower to your project!
