Spiral flower tutorial for Maria

Start off with a circle of patterned paper - double sided looks best but I've used card to make it easier to follow.
Depending on how you want the final look, use a punch or tear the paper.
Draw a spiral on the back and cut or tear.
Starting at the thin end, wind round a cocktail stick or pokey tool till you get to the end.  Let go and it will unravel a bit which is fine. 

Put glue on the base and press the flower down onto base and hold for a couple of seconds until the glue has taken hold.
and there you have it.
Let me know it you can follow it easily enough Maria:)
