My First Tutorial ~ A Pretty Posie!!

Well...I did my first tutorial, ever, for the P K Glitz blog on these pretty little posies! I'm sure you've seen them around but I wanted to show you how I make them! While they take a little time to create, they are worth the effort!!
To start...get your supplies ready, you'll need: P K Glitz Ritzy Ditzy Glitz and Glitter Glitz in a complementary color, scallop punch, vintage paper or print, glue, brads, flower centers and leaves....after that...you're ready to go...
Start by punching out lots of scallops circles....you can use, sheet music, children's stories, dictionary pages...anything really...

Then spray with your Ritzy Ditzy Glitz spray, I'm using Turquoise, as much as you like (I like a Lot!) and wait until dry (you wont have to wait long!)...

Then put glue on the edges....I pierce mine and do several at a time....and spoon all that yummy glitter over the glue! I love the look of that pile o'glitter...its called Lagoon...isn't it sparkly!!?!!

Here is another look at the glue all glittered up....pretty huh?!

Then, stack 5 or more of your glittered circles on top of each other and stick a brad in the center....almost done.....

Now crumple each layer towards the center where the brad is...do each layer individually....

Finally, add your decorative centers and leaves, if you want them...and viola...pretty paper posies for your projects!! You can make them in different colors to match your project too!! Fun, Fun, Fun!

I hope you like my first ever tutorial! If you make these posies, please leave me a link here or over on the P K Glitz blog as I would love to see them!!! Thanks for taking a peek! Have a great day!!
