Here are some tp tubes and a pt tube,painted white and ready for the next step!
The same tubes laid on their sides and gently flattened.
A close-up showing how I marked .5" inch marks and the cut them up.
Piles of "petals"!
Flowers! (Or stars,or snowflakes!)
The ones that are white on the inside as well were cut from the tp tubes.I could reach in and paint them before cutting them up.
The pt tubes were just too long to "pre paint" on the inside. No problem,though.They are easy to do now! :D
