I've just discovered a great product for flower making & I can see it becoming quite addictive. It's called "foamiran" & it's a very thin foam which can be die cut or even punched. You can then heat it either with an iron or heat tool & scrunch it up to create great shaping for your flowers. It can be coloured with inks or I used Gelatos on a wet wipe. The heart is MDF & I gave it a coating of Creative Expressions Gilding Polishes.
