Quick How To Tips:
I cut paper strips varying in width from 3/4" x 12" to 1 1/4" x 12" using a decorative edge trimmer or border punch. Then I scored between the decorative edge designs of the paper- no need to measure.
Once the strips are accordian folded attacg the ends with stong adhesive.
I find that the best way to anchor these accordian folded circles is with some hot glue applied to a punched circle, then form the pleated flower circle and press on top of the punched circle. Hold this in place for a few seconds until the glue is cool. With hot glue, you never have to worry about the pleated flower coming undone.
