Practical tips for making giant paper flowers

I've been making giant paper flowers for a Valentine dinner at church, some over a foot in diameter.  (Maybe "large" is a better description than "giant", but believe me, they seem giant when they're taking over your house!)
I watched a BUNCH of great videos on youtube on how to make these flowers, all different kinds and different methods, and have compiled them into a "What Worked For Me" type tutorial today at CutCardStock.  Aside from the hot glue burns, these are actually pretty fun to make!  These would be so pretty for a wedding or reception d├ęcor.  :)

Because, why not?  My friend Lisa demonstrated these to us at our art group last month, and it was a lovely morning of art and conversation and waffles!
You'll find more details in my heartfelt post today at Altered Pages.
