Ruffle Flower Tutorial

As Promised...


***Product list***

Coffee Filters
Glimmer Mist
Adhesive, glue, and a tape runner would be good as well
Scalloped circle punch or die (Love my Spellbinders Scallop Circle set)
Beautiful buttons or Prima middles or similar

Punch out about 15-16 coffee filter scalloped circles.
Color your punched pieces with your Spray Mists. I used 2 different colors on these pieces and topped it with Gold for added glimmer.

Take your scallop circle and fold it on half, then fold in half again (quarter) then fold again (eighth).
Fold all pieces before assembling.
Punch out your 1 inch circle (or free hand cut it, you wont see it anyway) Spray the same color as your scallop circle pieces. Add a ring of glue around the circle as shown.
Take one of your folded pieces and place it over the glue. Make sure the folded edge is on the right and the open edge is on the left.

Start placing your folded pieces overlapping them ever so slightly making sure the folded edge is on your right. This way the open edge will fluff up a little in the same direction.
You should have enough pieces to create a full circle of petals. 15 or 16 petals should be enough depending on how close you overlap them.


Place your middle onto the flower. I used a button on this one. I just removed the shank so that it lay flat.
You may notice that the purple flower is slightly different than the others. That is because I folded the scalloped circle in quarters, eliminating that last fold. It makes a wider petal, and you need fewer. You will only need half the amount. enjoy making your ruffle flowers!!
This flower will revealed on Swirlydoos on January 31 on reveal day...Super Simple...
