Valentine Bouquet

Here's the project I shared
on the CropStop blog.
to get the new link party started today!
 What says "I love you!" better than a bouquet of red roses?
(Especially if their accompanied by a box of chocolates!)
I created this mini picture tutorial to show you how
I made the rose bouquet on the front of this card.
Supplies and Tools: Spellbinders Scallop Circle Die, Flower Punch, Stylus, Cardstock, Hot Glue Gun,  Dictionary page or newspaper (also useful the Craft Molding Mat )
To start with Punch 4 flowers from cardstock and cut one Scallop Circle from dictionary page or newspaper  
Step 1 Fold Scalloped Circle as shown above 
Step 2 Using your stylus, lightly press the center of two punched flowers to fold upwards
Step 3 Using the small end of your stylus, fold two flowers up over the end to form a tight center for your rose 
Step 4 Assemble flower by hot gluing the two tightly folded petals together
 Step 5 Add inside layers to the two slightly cupped flowers to complete your rose
