WOYWW #522

Foamiran Flowers.
I cut the flowers using CC dies. 
I heat the foam using a heat gun. I hold the flower still with a pokey tool'
 I like to start about 4 inches above the flower and move the gun higher as soon as it starts to curl.

I put the flower on top of each other with a hot glue gun.

I added a large pearl to each centre.
I glued the to the card and added a little purple glitter pen to the edges. 

Hi everyone and a happy WOYWW #522.
I finally got my hands on the new Spring is in the air kit by Crafter's Companion.
I made some foamiran flowers using the flower dies from the kit.
I have the iron to heat the foamiran but I prefer to use my heat gun.
We have a Facebook group called Fabulous Foamiran
we would love it if you pop over and joined us HERE
Have a great week.
