recycled flower

This is a recycled flower with a rustic look .
 It´s very easy to do and with low cost. 
I created a gift box using the Nirvana Collection and 
embellished using this beautiful flower.

Step 01- Cut  3 circles of different sizes from a piece of paperboard from an old box.

Step 02 - Separate  and peel the layers of the paperboard 
keeping the center of the circle united.
 
Step 03 - Apply spray paint in the desired color, 
you can use water to crumple the paperboard like a little ball.
 
Step 04 - Hasten the drying process in the microwave for 30 seconds
 and  gently open the layers.
 With a paper piercer, make a "hole" and add a large  brad in the center.
 
 Step 05-Then arrange the "petals" and  with a paint brush add some white water paint
 to give an effect of light on the flower.
