Assembled Full Face

1. Select 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.
