Looped Flower Tutorial!

Good Morning! I'm here today to share with you all what I call the looped flower that I made on my last layout for SOUS!
Supply list

Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge
2 - 2 " loop flower
2 - 1 3/4" loop flower
2 - 1 1/2" loop flower
button or center of your choice
embroidery floss
distress ink
blending tool
foam pad
stylus or paint brush

 I used Aged Mahogany to ink the edges of my flowers.

Take each flower individually and press the stylus into the flower following the shape of the flower on the top side[ on your foam mat] This will give it a cupped look.

Take your Glimmermist and lightly mist the flowers, I used a clear pearl color just for some glimmer.

Start gluing your flower together starting with the largest to smallest, staggering the petals.

Take your embroidery floss of thread and tie it to the button.  I  used embroidery floss, not separating the threads until after I tied it.  I gives it a fun look.

Take your adhesive and glue the button onto the top of your flower.  You can leave it like this, as I did on my latest layout "Shh..." OR

You can take a squire and roll the edges of each petal down for a more polished look. Ta DA!  You are now done!  Pretty easy, eh?  The flower is limited only to your imagination.  Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you all give this flower a try and use it on your next layouts!
