Somewhere in the far east there is a little lady or child putting together these flowers to send over to Wilco where some crafter like me will take them home to happily rip them all apart again!
Anyway v happy with 15 of the big daisy type layers in this chrysanth/earwig plant dahlia style flower as opposed to 6 I think in the gerbera style flower for the same price. They're 6.5" across and not as neatly finished as primas granted, but 15 for less than a quid. Bargain.
Before; quite attractive

After; even better LOL

OH MY GOD, that is amazing and so not fair.........

why not fair I hear you say.......

well I just bought the exact same flower, and ripped it apart from Hobbycraft for £1.99. And yes they have gorgeous colours. Me thinks a trip to wilko's is in order.

I think with the large circle die layered on top it will be a gorgeous background. And a couple of them with a brown circle will make a lovely sunflower.

thanks for this tip Karelyn, think I may have to go out this weekend Mr Green
