Raffia Flowers

I just love Prima flowers and once again this is a flower tutorial inspired by the new Dew Raffia Collection by Prima. They are new releases in April and some are out of stock already! Mine are not as elegant, but they are very economical and super fast to make. In addition, you can make them any size and color you desire!
This tutorial was originally made for Pammy's Ideas for Scrapbookers on May 16th, 2011....Im a little late in putting it in my own you get the chance stop by her blog for so many great ideas and tutorial from all of her contributors
Here is the instructions to these easy Raffia Flowers: First you need the supplies:  3 quilling strips or 1/8 strips cut from cardstock, ¾ inch darker paper from strips, Scissors,  Glue, Rhinestone, Pearl stickles in White, Ruler
First cut your strips every 2 inches…which should be a total of 18 pieces.
Second, using a dab of glue, layer the strips on top of each other in a criss cross pattern.

Once you have layered all the pieces, flip it over to use the bottom….Its ok if you see left over glue in the center. It will be covered with the darker circle. ☺

Lastly, glue down ¾ inch circle, rhinestone and add stickles in a circle around the rhinestone. 
Here is the finished flower…takes about 10 minutes to make!
