★cut BLACKOUT to 1 inch x 1 1/4 inches, then cut to fringe as shown in the photo, making the cuts about 1/8th of an inch apart
★use the hemostat to hold the Blackout on the far right edge & heat the Blackout at the base. when warm, wind around the hemostat as tightly as possible.
★use the hemostat to hold the rounded base & heat the fringed area. when softened, shape to create the flower center as shown in the photo.
***remember that CFA can be reheated & reshaped as needed***
if you don't like the result...heat it & reshape it again...
my first try was UGLY!
★make a hole in the Blackout flower large enough to accommodate the flower center
★trim off excess flower center to the desired height, leaving it long enough to be pushed into the art parts flower...
