Flower Power...

My friends are turning 50  - how did that happen,?  I had two 50th Birthday cards to make this month, this one is my DT make for the Flower Power challenge over at Let's Craft and Create
I can't stop making these rolled roses, there's plenty of different dies and die cuts out there to make them with.  But, I like to make them the 'old school' way - by hand with scissors.

Cut a spiral, then cut back into the outside edge of the spiral and create a wavy edge.  Then roll up into the centre and secure with a large glue dot or blob of wet glue.

You can create different effects by slightly squashing the finished flower, inking the edges or by using decorative edge scissors, loads of possibilities.  What I like about making them by hand is that no two flowers are the same, just like nature!
