Fan Fold Flowers

I am always looking for new ways to embellish my cards.  This little fan-folded flower is fun and easy.  For the larger flower shown, take a 1/2" x 6" strip and accordion fold it.  The smaller one is 1/4" x 6".  When you get to the end, adhere the two ends together to form a circle.  (You could use a dab of Liquid Glass and hold the ends together with a binder clip.)  You can then glue the finished fan folded flower onto a small circle/base for stability.  The complete instructions are here on SplitCoastStampers.com
