Rolled Paper Flowers

 These are all over the internets in various forms, using various materials - paper, felt, fabric, metal, etc... and I wanted to try my hand at them.

To make mine, I glued two pieces of identical scrapbook paper together (I didn't have any two-sided paper close to hand). Then, I cut spirals out of the paper. I cut out several, in several different sizes. To get the flower shape, I started at the inside of the spiral and just...rolled. There are lots of online tutorials, but that's the basic deal. I made some polka dotted flowers and some white ones. Then, I slid them onto this foil heart centerpiece thingy. The whole thing took maybe half an hour.

Kinda funky, but I like it!
