3D Paper Flowers!

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces and place them in size order.
2.  Use your skewer or pencil to curve each of the petals.  For the center, roll the piece then bend at the bottom.
3.  Adhere the center in the middle of the smallest flower form.
4.  Fold up the petals around the center then adhere into the next sized flower form, staggering the petals.
5-9. Continue adding flowers as described above.
10. Fluff out your flower to achieve your desired look then ink around the edges.

Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out all your pieces.
2. Roll your square piece diagonally (and tightly) then secure with tape.  This will be your stem.
3. Place adhesive on the back of one of the flower holder pieces.  Wrap it tightly around the top of the stem.  Secure with tape (or hot glue) then bend the pieces outward as shown.
4. Gather your flower pieces.
5. Curve the larger of the two pieces down and the smaller curve in toward the center.  Bend both in the center using the guide mark.
6.  Place adhesive on both sides of the circle on the flower holder piece then push the circle up through the larger flower (with the hole center) and pinch to adhere it in place.
7.  Place adhesive on the back of the remaining flower and adhere it to the center of the first flower piece (make sure to match the flower sides so they are the same petal shape).
8.  Next curve the flower center and bend in the center then bend up the ends of the middle piece.
9.  Adhere the middle piece to the center then adhere in the flower as shown.
10. Continue adding your flowers following these steps until the entire flower holder is filled.
11. Add on your second flower holder and repeat the steps.  
12. Your flower should look like this. Add on your third flower holder and repeat the steps again.
13.  Your finished flower should be similar to this.  Trim the bottom of the stem so that it is flat and stick in a vase!

This sentiment flower is perfect for gift bags and wrapped gifts, you could even use it for tags or cards! The files come with the sentiment backing and all the pieces you need to build the flower. You can use the pieces on their own or together as shown. This file is compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 
Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces.
2.  Use a skewer or pencil to curve the flower petals.  Adhere the two centers together and bend up the ends as shown.
3.  Adhere the center to the smallest flower.
4-7.  Bend the petals up toward the center and adhere in the next sized flower form, staggering the petals.  Continue doing this until all flower pieces are together.
8.  Fluff out your flower and adhere to the center of the sentiment.
