Note from Anabelle: I've seen lots of different kinds of flowers made from paper spirals. Here's a bit of a twist on them. I call them Spiral Bowl flowers. They are quick and easy to make!

  1. Cut a circle about the size that you want your flower to be.
  2. Cut a spiral into the circle.
  3. Starting at the center, twist the paper making a bowl shape.
  4. Secure the layers by taping the back of the flower. Add a button to the center.
    Top it off with a jewel.
  5. Add the flowers to a card.
