–Glue Gun –65-pound cardstock –Scissors and/or cutting machine –Thin wooden dowel for rolling –Paper Blooms shaping mat and tool set


Step 1 The first step will be to cut out all the petals. I am using a shimmer white paper here from my local Hobby Lobby.

Step 2 Using your thin wood dowel curl the petals around the dowel. If you are using the Paper Blooms tool set, roll the center to help the petal stand up naturally. Repeat this with all the petals.

Step 3 Make sure your smallest 5 point petals are curled tightly together. Use your fingers to push tightly, rolling the petals so you center bud is closed once we glue in.

Step 4 The next step is to glue in the third 3-point petal. Move next to the 5-point petals, gluing them in the same way.
