Awhile ago I post a few cards using this technique, it is super fast and easy, you can check out a sample in the new Summer catalog. So here we go
Step 1.) Punch 9 circles 1 1/4 inches, you could do any size but start with this to determine what size you would want to use later on your own project, I used my Cricut to cut the circles.

Step 2.) Fold 8 of the circles in 1/2, they will need to overlap. Set 1 circle aside, this will be your base.
Step 3.) Each should look like this when they are done
Step 4.) Now find the center point of the base circle, I fold mine in 1/2 then 1/2 again, that will give you a good guide, you should be able to fit 2 of the blooms in each of the quarters. Just glue them down as you go.

Dig around in your stash and see what odds and ends you can come up with for the center, brads, buttons, beads, the sky is the limit. Take 10 minutes out of your day today and give this a try!! Now I am off to the Strawberry patch to pick a few more gallons of berries, we have plenty of jelly (30 jars!) but I need lots more in the freezer for winter. If you didn't get a chance to see the U Tube video from yesterday make sure and watch it, sooo funny
