The pink petals range from large to smaller sizes. Each flower except for the tiny sizes, needs at least two layers and will sometimes have as many as five or six total layers, each glued atop the lower, until you are ready to choose what center you want-large or small, paper, glitter, craft sand, rhinestones, pom-poms. I use an inexpensive thick white glue for all but the topmost layer for the glue-glob, which will be 'sanded' to make a raised textured center.

The 'sanding' glue must be a dimensional type such as Glossy Accents by Inkssentials, Diamond Glaze, Aleene's Paper Glaze, FolkArt Papier Glass Finish, clear. Also Royal Coat Dimensional Magic, clear. These glues are more expensive so are used only for the 3D flower center. With lighter colored sands, the color of the flower center paper will make a slight difference in the way the sand appears. The shapes are glued in layers and are ready to sand.
