UTEE Flowers

I found this method on making UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) flowers on the Cricut Message boards. The lady who posted it made such an awsome video there really isnt a need to go into detail about how I did them. Here is the link to her video/blog 217 Creations
The only difference between hers and mine is that my flowers were pre-assembled. I used the Tim Holtz style of making the flowers, and then dipped them in the UTEE. Once they were fully coated, I used the heat gun to smooth it out, and to take off any extra thick pieces. Also, I had to be very careful with my flowers, because I used hot glue to glue them together the UTEE would melt the glue, and at time the flower would want to break apart.
Once I got the hang of making them I really do now enjoy them alot! Making my own flowers is a lot cheaper then buying them, and I can make them in the colors I want!
