Paper Flower Mumm Tutorial

Here is a picture tutorial for the Mumms I showed in my last post. 

This is a really easy paper flower to make (as my paper flowers go). It does take a few steps but to goes together quickly without a lot of shaping and molding.

For a good Mumm you will need about 16 spidery flower shapes in different widths. You can use as many or as few as you like. ( I will have a link to a cut file at the bottom of the post.)

For this flower, I used flower shapes in the following sizes:2 flowers at 2 inches, 2 flowers at 1.75 in.,  2 flowers at  1.5 inches, 2 at 1.25 in, 2 at 1 in, 2 of .75 in., and  6 at .5 inch 

Stack the flower shapes on a craft mat or plastic. 

Spritz with water.

Put the 6 smallest flowers to the side.

Take the larger group of flowers and use your fingers to scrunch up the petals. (yes "scrunch" is the official term LOL) Repeat with the smaller group of flowers.
Push the petals back a little and...

Spread the larger group of flowers out. If the centers are too wet to glue, allow them to dry a little. (if the little flowers are too wet they may need to dry out too.)
OK, starting with the largest flowers glue & stack the large group of flowers. Stagger the petals.

Now, with the smaller group of flowers, scrunch one up like this...
Then put glue on the bottom and attach to another flower shape...
Fold the bottom flower up and
repeat this with the remaining small petals.



Now just put the small group of flowers in the center of the large group

Hope you enjoy this tutorial and make some Mumms of your own.
