A little flower box topper
Each person got a sheet of whisper white CS.
They are cut longways into 2 1/8x 11 inch pieces as shown on the left.
You can put a stack of 4 larger rectangle over the bigger flower and 4 thinner rectangles over the smaller petal as shown. Then you only have the run it twice to make all 16 petals. Really speedy. Then run the black for the stamen and the Old Olive for the petals.
8 Big petals, 8 smaller petals, 2 green leaves, a black center. I used one 1 1/2 inch circle as the base to build the flower and a daffodil delight 1/2 inch circle (the clear faceted button shows what is underneath and the daffodil circle helps it look better)
This is how it looks from the back. I initially made it without the base and it was all wonky after it was made - with the base it is more sturdy and easier to attach to the box anyway.
