I've gotten a few questions on how I made the flower top for the Inspiration Jar http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346882.msg4038482#msg4038482.

I put together this quick tutorial for the flower and made a bookmark out of it. I also created a pattern for the petals & flower so you can download and print it! You can expand on this, making it as large as you want or as small as you need.

Template for Flower:

Step 1: Gather Supplies

*card stock for the petals & leaves
*E6000 glue
*popsicle stick
*the petal pattern

Step 2: Cut out all the pieces from the pattern

Step 3: Start assembling. Curl and bend the pieces to make them look more realistic (or not, and make a 2D flower). Glue the tail pieces to the stick.

Step 4: Make the 4 large petals look similar to this, then as you place the middle petals, off set them to make it add the the realism.

Step 5: Curl the center piece and glue it together with a dap of glue. Then add it to the center with glue.

Step 6: Add the leaves. Crinkle them and put the glue on the tail piece and slide it under the flower onto the popsicle stick.

Step 7: Enjoy your new bookmark!

Ohh this is GREAT! I definitely want to make some, though maybe not as a bookmark. I cram my beloved books into my purse and on the bus, so I would be so afraid for the flower's safety.

I'm personally not a fan of E-6000 for paper crafts. That stuff stinks up the entire house! Have you checked out YES paste? Maannn that stuff is awesome, and it doesn't have such a severe odor.

Look me up on Society 6!

I also have one o' them tumblrs
