To create folded circle shape, cut a 1” circle from a piece of paper.
Using the same patterned paper, cut another circle twice the size (2”) as the first circle.
Using a paintbrush and water, wet the larger circle.
Lay the smaller circle inside larger one.
Fold edges of the larger circle to cover the inner smaller circle. As the circle dries, the folded shape will remain intact.
Repeat process using different sized circles from varying papers.
Cut out additional circles from varying papers (do not fold these papers, keep flat).
To create a flower, layer and adhere the different sized folded and flat circles together.
Adhere silk flowers, ribbons and buttons to the centers of circles.
