As promised....

.....the flower tutorial:
Some of the photos are blurred-sorry about that but I think you will get the idea!!
You need scissors, glue, a cardboard circle 1"-1.5" in diameter, and crepe paper strip around 1" wide.

 Apply glue to the cardboard circle. Cut the crepe paper into roughly heart shaped petals.

Scrunch up the bottom of the petals and start adding them around the outside of the circle.
Continue adding petals into the centre of the circle.
Cup the flower in your hand and scrunch the petals towards the centre. You can be quite rough at this stage.
Lightly spritz the flower with water, or if you want to change the colour, then use glimmer mist, or ink.   Allow it to dry scrunched up -or use a heat gun.
Lightly tease the petals out a little and add a centre-button, gems, brad-whatever you fancy.
If you want you can add some glitter glue for some sparkle too.
And that's it. Easy, quick, and very pretty!!
