Been Playing

Morning crafty friends and Followers, I've been up early with the Grandchildren, so I thought I would have a play and Sophie (3) has been helping me. I thought I would make some flowers using Candy Dots, it's not hard, the only thing is it is a bit fiddly.

To make these flowers you will need 1 to 11/2 inch circles, (I used a punch to do mine), candy dots, tweezers and PVA glue.  Start by covering the circle with PVA glue, it's best if you do a few all together. Start by putting 2 candy dots in the middle, you need to bend the candy dots round the end of the tweezers, as shown

Now you start from the outside edge, pick the candy dot up with the tweezers, with the tweezers tip in the middle of the candy dot twist the candy dot around the tweezers as shown

Do the twisting with all the candy dots you are using for the flower.
Lie the candy dots around the outside edge of the circle, once you have done the outside edge start going around again moving closer and closer to the middle of the flower.

This is the finished flower.

I hope you like my flowers and have a try and let me know how you did
