5 or 6 different prints of scrapbook paper
Foam paintbrush
Wax paper
Large rhinestone (one for each flower)
Hot glue
Easter Basket

1. Tear the papers into random circle shapes in various sizes. The largest should be around 3 inches and the smallest about 1.5 inches. The idea is to tear an organic shape, don't worry about creating perfect circles. You will need about 5 or 6 circles per flower.

2. Place the circles print side up on the wax paper. Coat each circle with 2 layers of extreme glitter.

3. Once dry, hot glue the circles in a graduated layer fashion. Hot glue a gem to the center of each flower.

4. Add ribbon embellishment to the Easter basket with hot glue. Hot glue the flowers across the center front of the basket.
