Friendzy Friday~ Gluber flowers

I have had a few people ask how I made these paper flowers so I thought I'd show you for this week's Friendzy Friday at Two Scrapbook Friends!

They are super easy. You need a Cosmo Cricket gluber, a small circle punch, a pencil and two kinds of contrasting paper. I chose a cardstock and a patterned paper.

Punch circles from each paper. I started with 8 circles of my solid cardstock for my flower centre.

Scrunch your circles (pattern or texture up) around the end of a pencil.

Remove the top backing of your gluber and adhere your circles close together in the centre of the gluber.

Continue until you are happy with the centre of your flower.

Then add your contrasting colour around the edge for the flower "petals."

You should end up with something like this!

Carefully remove the backing of your gluber and adhere your flower to your project. Here is one I added to a recent layout using Cosmo Cricket papers.

It is a fun way to add texture and dimension to your projects!
