Petals for each row that are about equal in size. Cut a disc of paper about 1
1/2" in diameter. At the outer edge of the disc, arrange petals in a circle,
overlapping the sides of the petals. The first row will determine the finished size
of the flower; check to determine if it is the desired size before gluing.
|2. To form a
second row, glue the base of slightly smaller petals in a circle within the first row.
The number of rows required to fill in the flower will depend on the size of the
petals and the finished size of the flower.
|3. Cut some
small triangles to overlap to form the center of the carnation.
Glue a stem to the back of the carnation, allowing only the base of the calyx to show
