Paper Flowers-2

These flowers were fun to make. I have used Chatterbox Patterned Paper again as it is double sided, thin and slightly textured. I think i might have to make a tutorial on how to do these ones.

Anyway, I will give it a go in explaining how to make them.
1.I drew a spiral and then cut out the spiral as a long twisted piece.
2.I then rolled it around a tooth pick and glued the end of the paper in place so it didn't unravel.
3.At this stage the flower is quite high so what I did is get my thumb and squashed the flower down and you get this textured flower. You might have have to alter the petals a little here so they look like petals. Sometimes I have to do this and sometimes not. You never get the same flower.
4.I have used Gel Medium to glue them in place.
