I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to make flowers when the Spiral Flower Original Die ($21.95) does all the work.
To get the flower started, I wrapped the narrow end around a chopstick and then spiraled the flower around removing the chopstick at about the half way. Next, I adhered it together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Almost any adhesive will work including a glue gun, glue dots and glue sticks. Once the adhesive was applied, I left the flowers to dry for a awhile with a punch sitting on top of them so they could dry without opening up. These were so charming to make that I can just see myself sitting in front of the TV making lots of flowers so they can be all ready for my next project. Watch the video below to see just how simple these flower are.
To assemble this card, I adhered two layers of Whisper White card stock to the Midnight Muse card after embossing the top layer with the Scallops Embossing Folder. The tag was punched out with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and embellished with Whisper White 5/8" Organza and Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbons.
This is a card that you probably won’t mail but if you are hand delivering a card or creating other projects, making flowers just doesn’t get any simpler than with the Spiral Flower Originals Die.
The flower on the left was wrapped tightly, the one in the middle I left looser so it looks more open. My favorite flower though is the one on the right. I used two layers of cardstock, Midnight Muse and Marina Mist. I cut both card stocks out at the same time and made my flower as usual. To finish the flower, I glued the bases down one at a time.

I also made a bookmark with the Spiral Flower Originals Die. I again used two layers of card stock – Real Red and Melon Mambo and attached Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon for the stem. The center of the flower is an Antique Brad.
