Crinkle Flowers.

I have made these flowers from Japanese papers. I used to make them out of fabric and thought they might look Ok in paper. They worked. 

Method.
1. Draw a freehand circle on white cardstock.
2. Cut out a larger circle than the drawn one in the Japanese paper.
3. Glue circumference to circumference making a few pleats in the larger circle as you glue.
4. There will be a big hump in the centre, press it down to make the folds in the centre.
5. Cut the 2 layers out as a circle and fold back the cardstock here and there to make the petals.
6. Decorate the flowers with Kindy Glitz etc.
