Comics Flowers with Tutorial!

I've been playing with lots of comic book ideas lately and thought up this one, since I've made flowers with fabric before...  It's fun and easy and a new take on recycling/upcycling!  You will need comics, cloth floral wire and clear drying glue (like Elmer's or Weldbond).

1. Choose your images from comic books, and paint a coat of mod-podge over the area.
2. Take floral wire and bend around a round dowel or object, then pull slightly into a pear shape, wrapping ends together under flower petal.

3. Glue around petal shape and stick to image.  I like to make the wire petals stand up straight to dry correctly.

4. Let dry, and add another coat of mod-podge before assembling.

5. Take 5 petals and twist together, bending into the flower shape, until you are happy with the results.
6. Enjoy!
