Flower topiary

This was a very very time consuming project. But we'll worth it. I seen this in a magazine and knew I had to try to make it. I started by cutting my flowers using the cricut cartridge flower shoppe. Each flower was cut at 5.5" there are 74 of them. I inked each one using brilliance shimmer inks. Then I hand rolled each petal. This took 5 mins each. I folded the edges down on each petal then rolled the flower up, let it unroll some, glued the back to hold it together, then folded the edges back again. I got a 6" styrofoam ball painted it the same color as my card stock (took it to lowes they matched it) then I got a wooden towel and a small metal pot. Ok ok here's the pics......
