3-D flower tutorial

Hi Ladies, I have been having so much fun today crafting. I hope you did too!! I made these cute flowers today for the top of an explosion box I was making, so I thought I would do a tutorial on how to make them. I have pictures and instructions, and I also did a video.... oh my gosh did I say video... Well this was my VERY first time trying to attempt the video thing. I'm not sure how to make the video so you can see everything without my big hands getting in the way, and the gnat that kept flying around me ( I had the door open while I was working today because it was SOOO nice outside). But I promise I will get better at it. Practice, practice, practice RIGHT? So I will put the video on here only if you promise not to laugh to hard at my bad blurry hands,my Southern draw, or at one point you cant see what Im doing because I got off camera...... so do you still want to see it???? Just know that the finished product is something you are going to want to get your hands in. So enjoy.
First punch eight circles from patterned paper.

fold and hot glue a pleat into seven of the circles. Fold the last circle into quarters, then open flat. Then hot glue a pleated circle to the center of the open quartered circle. Add the other pleated circles layering each one around the base circle to get the flower look. Add an expoxy sticker, bead, or brad in the center and you are done. I am having a hard time posting the video. So I think I will try it in a seperate post.

Paula, I like your happy flowers. Did you create the idea? Gotta try these. We are happy to see your video. Just put it up. It's hard to put up the first, but every one is just being normal in their vids. (Did you see the one I did on the wobbles?) I want to hear your drawling drawl!!)
