Trying out different paper flowers

These flowers are made using a Marianne Design die and cutting out a petal each time and then layering up using glue gel.  I tried using PVA which works well to stick the petals but not so well for layering up.

The little red flower is made using the same Marianne Design die but instead of removing petals I have just shaped them and layered them up.  The red one is a Marianne Design as well but i usually only use this one for poinsettias at Christmas.

After all my fiddling and trial and error, my six year old daughter comes in from school and makes this one at her first attempt.  Well done Kerrie! You're putting your mummy to shame.
