Scallop Rosette Tutorial!

Hi all!  Happy Friday to you.  Many of you had asked me about instructions on the flower rosette I created on this card, and I'm happy to say, I've finally gotten the chance to put it together for you!  Here it is:

2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch
Paper Snips
Your choice of DSP
Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
Bone Folder
Glue Dots

1.  Punch out 6 scallop circles, then make the following cuts on each:
-cut one from the edge to the center of the circle
-then on the remaining scallop circles, do the following: cut a 2 scallop pie sliver, 3 scallop pie sliver, 5 scallop pie sliver, 6 scallop pie sliver, and lastly, cut a 7 scallop pie sliver (basically cutting the circle in half).  See picture below.
2. Use the bone folder to curl each of the pieces:
 3. Apply the Tombow glue along one edge of each of the scallop circle pieces and create a "cone shape" with each piece:

4.  Cut about 1/4" off the bottom of each cone - this will allow each of the flower layers to better nest and create a full flower.

5.  Now that you have all your layers created, all you need to do is assemble the flower by nesting time together!  To add some texture, first nest all the layers together and then place the flower in your palm  and crumple in your hand.  Then when you're happy with how your flower looks, all you need to do is use glue dots at the base of each flower and adhere to each layer.  Start from smallest to largest.  Your finished flower will look something like this:
Now it's your turn!  Have fun creating these flowers!!!  Thanks for popping in!
