Here is the flower tutorial that I promised when I did my daughter's first day of school layout.
This is how I made the small rose looking flowers, it's very simple and you only need a couple of supplies.
Here is the supply list (so you can make one while you watch the video):
strip of cardstock or double sided paper - 1/4 inches wide by 12 inches long
water paintbrush or a small cup with water in it and a paint brush
glue, either liquid or glue dots will work
