Candi Love Week - Day 4 Candi Twist Flowers!

So today is Day 4 of Candi Love Week - are you enjoying all the amazing Candi inspiration?
We hope you are and that you will join in all the fun and enter all the competitions, your chance to win some fabulous prizes!

Today we are going to share with you a gorgeous Candi Twist flower that Design Team member, Kay Fletcher designed.

Step 1
Punch a circle from white cardstock to use as a base for your flower.  Take 3 pieces of Candi and using tweezers, twist each piece.  Apply a dot of glue to the centre of punched circle and stand the Candi, upright, in the glue.

Step 2
Take 2 pieces of Candi and wrap them around a cocktail stick, this creates the centre of your flower.
Interlock the 2 pieces between the 3 upright pieces on the punched circle.

Step 3
On scrap paper put a large circle of glue.  Twist 5 more pieces of Candi using tweezers and dip into glue and attach around the edge of centre petals.

Step 4
Continue adding 'twisted' Candi around the outside edge until the flower is the required size.

This is how Kay made the flower for the centre piece of this stunning box.

We would love to see your Candi Twist Flowers, send pictures to candilovebycwc@talktalk.net and we will share them on the blog.

Enjoy the rest of Candi Love Week, the prize for leaving your comments today is a surprise (could it be a Candi ring, I wonder??!) if you're not in you'll never know!

Until tomorrow........
