Seven Flower Pop Up Redux

A shout out to anyone who tried the Seven Flower Pop Up and didn't like the "pop". Blame me, blame me completely. The gluing instructions in the very last step should have showed only the center petal glued to the card, not the center three petals. Please give it another chance and see if it works better.

I think your card paper is too thin. Try making your flowers out of thin paper and your card out of cardstock.

Anonymous, I suspect you were a little too generous with the glue. I used pre-made glue dots. It's a controlled size and doesn't spread to places you don't want it.
