Glitter Bling Flower Tutorial with KaiserCraft and Xyron

Today I've got a great little tip/trick/tutorial for some blinged out flowers.  
Step 1: Run a paper bloom through a 3" Create a Sticker by Xyron.  This will coat the entire flower with adhesive.
Step 2: Rub the flower well and then remove the top clear layer.  You can run your finger over the flower now and rub off any excess glue. 
Step 3: Coat the adhesive side of the flower with a fine glitter.
Step 4: Use a sharp pointed pair of tweezers and scrap off some of the glitter in a pattern.  I just used lines down each of the petals. The paper blooms softness and the Xyron glue work great together for manipulation.
Step 5: Create several various sizes and stack together to create a full flashy flower.  Top the center off with a Sparklet. 
Here is my oversized tag I created adorned with my sparkly flowers.
