Handmade Flower

I was looking at scrapbook blogs the other day and saw a very cute paper flower that Create Artezzanato had posted on the their blog.  I'm including the YouTube video Artezzanato made that insprired me to make my flower.

I didn't make my flower exactly like Artezzantos.

I made lots of extra petals in four sizes instead of three.

I also bent back my petals.  This resulted in small tears in some of the petals.  These tears weren't intentional, but I think make the flower look more realistic.

I have no idea what I will use this flower on.  It's clearly to thick to use in a scrapbook layout.  Likely it will end up on a card or on top of a gift.  In the mean time its going to find a home in my stash :).
