I realized that I never finished my book themed baby shower posts. Better late than never right?
First, I printed a scalloped circle with an even number of scallops on an 8 x 11 1/2 piece of paper to use as a template to cut the paint chips and dictionary pages. The scalloped circle was approximately three inches in diameter. I used the the template to cut two circles out of paint chips and two circles out of dictionary pages.
Between every two scallops, I cut towards the center of the circle (but not to the center). I folded the petals. I used a hot glue gun to glue the cut and folded circles so that the colored sides of the paint chip circles were facing out and the dictionary pages were sandwiched between them.
I used a penny as a template to cut two circles out of yellow paint chips: one about 1/4 inch larger than the penny and one the size of the penny. I cut slits in the larger circle around the penny and folded up the edges. I glued the two circles together.
I glued the circles to the center of the flower petals and glued the flower to a golf tee. I then attached the flower and golf tee to a piece of floral wire using floral tape.
To make the leaves, I cut two identical leaf shapes from paint chips and then using a hot glue gun, glued the two pieces together with a piece of floral wire sandwiched between them.
