"Paper Towel Flowers" tutorial

Good morning! I have received many requests from you as to how to make these flowers.... so here it goes!

White Paper Towels
Glimmer Mists
"Tattered Flowers" Sizzix Die by Tim Holtz

Step 1:
Spray the paper towel with glimmer mist according to taste. I suggest you use more than two colors so you can get a better effect.

Step 2:
Wait for the paper towel to dry. (You can speed up the drying with your heat embossing gun).
Fold it in four  and cut the flowers

Step 3:
Stack and glue them one at a time. You can mix and match as you like.

Step 4:
Once they are glued together wet them with aerosol  hairspray  and pinch and mold the petals before the hairspray dries. The hairspray allows the paper to hold the shape and also makes it stronger.

Step 5:
They dry fairly quick. They become stiffer and easier to handle.

Step 6:
Voila! They are ready to be scrapped and make your pages even more beautiful with your own creations!
