On the first layer I placed two directly across from each other and then filled in the sides. I used a Hot Glue gun to attach the petals. You can use other glues but the Hot Glue dries really fast and it just makes things go so much faster.
The next layer uses the same size petal, this time I folded them in the center at the tip. Place the petals in between the first layer.
The next layer is the medium petal and they go down just like the last layer, super easy.
For the last layer of the double petals I just folded the petals in half, then layed them across each other, you can even add another set so make six petals but I thought this was a good place to stop.
The punch has these cute little x's for the center. I used gold glimmer paper for these.
The leaves just get attached to the back of the flower and if you are going to hand this to your tree you could also attach a bit of gold cord too. To clean up the back I also added another circle.
Browsing Pinterest the other day I saw some really pretty variations of this in silver and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, and of course there is the gold one on the cover of the Holiday catalog. The one on the cover uses an even bigger circle starting point and even more layers for a larger flower.
