Take your image and color it. You may need to have up to 3 of the same image for the layers.Then glue it to 3 layers of card stock with lots of tacky glue because you want the paper to become soft.
You can use this in place of flowersoft and it's just a small fraction of the cost.
Items needed :
Two large Styrofoam balls, ink refills, small containers, small bowl and spoon.
I made the cattails on this card using my flower fluff with a little glue and covered wire. It works great for flowers, animals and any greens.
