Peeled Paper Poppies Tutorial

***Product List***
McGill Starburst Punch
McGill Medium Geramium Punch
1 inch Circle Punch
Papertrey Ink card stock (110 pound weight)
Prima Eline Pearls or similar

Punch out 5 Geranium Petals, 1 circle and 2 Starburst.

Roll the petals around using your fingers to loosen the fibers in the paper. You will see the paper starting to separate.
Carefully separate the paper in half but do not separate it apart all of the way. Leave intact above the stem area.
Place a ring of glue around your punched circle.
Start placing the petals around the circle overlapping them a bit.
Evenly space your petals if they are not already.
Stack your Starburst punched pieces, staggering the petals slightly. You can add more then 2 layers for a fuller effect.

You can use the Eline Pearls or whatever you wish to place in the middles. Buttons, tiny flowers or brads. Have fun peeling paper!!
