Step 2: Cut circle

Cut a circle from paper. Starting at the outside edge, cut a spiral towards the center. Slightly scalloping the edges will create a more natural and imperfect looking blossom.

Step 3: Tightly coil

i'm guessing cutting it from a spiral is why it works better that using strips

All of mine are turning out tiny and I have to glue all throughout. How do I make them look more bloomed like those shown?

Allow them to 'uncoil' a bit before gluing to the back piece. Or you could try cutting your circle larger and vary the coil width when cutting. Sorry for the trouble!

Over the winter I laid sheets of "Bounce" in my little travel trailer - and it left it smelling so nice - I'm going to try this with some Bounce - If I want color, I assume I could spray with some watered down food color - the colors wouldn't be as bright, probably would be more of a pastel or watercolor look. Thanks for the 'ible - I was just thinking of this a day or so ago!
