Mum 3D Paper Flowers!

Today I am sharing two Mum Flowers.  
This is the Large Mum Flower:
Tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the pieces and pinch the leaves on the score lines.  Ink around the edges of the flower pieces if desired.
2.  Adhere the center pieces together, matching up the circles in the center but staggering the tips.  Place the yellow circle under the smallest purple as shown.
3.  Bend the pieces up so your center looks like this now.
4.  Adhere the center pieces together.
5.  Use a skewer (or pencil) to bend the petals of each flower, pinching them in the center around the skewer.  Each flower should look like this.
6-12.  Start with the largest flower working your way to the smallest...adhere the centers together and stagger the petals.
13.  Adhere your center in the middle of your flower then adhere your leaf pieces together then attach them to the bottom of the flower.  Your flower should look like this now! 

and this one is my Mum Fringe Flower:

1.  Cut out all the pieces and pinch the leaves on the score lines.  Ink around the edges of the flower pieces if desired.
2.  Starting with the fringe cut, place a strip of adhesive along the straight edge.
3.  Roll the piece tightly and secure the ending place.
4.  Fluff out the fringe so it looks similar to this.
5.  Use a skewer (or pencil) to bend the petals of each flower, pinching them in the center around the skewer.  
6.  Do this for each flower.  Each flower should look like this now.
7.  Starting with the largest flower, place adhesive around the circle cut in the center.  Attach the small circle to the center (to give it a different color).
8.  Your large flower should look like this now.
9.  Adhere the next flower on top, centering but staggering the petals.
10-16.   Working your way to the smallest, continue to adhere the flowers placing the centers together and stagger the petals.
17.  Adhere your leaf pieces together then attach them to the bottom of the flower. 
18.  Your flower should look like this now!
