Embossing Petaloo Flowers

While working on my buddy page for The Acadiana Cropper's, Cropping in the 60's crop I discovered that you can emboss the foam flowers by Petaloo. I was adding them to my page and the flowers were curling up. I figured if I hit the flowers with my heat gun for a few seconds they would unfold and lay flat. Well I guess I heated one up a bit too much and it started to curl up the other way. I immediately removed the heat and placed my hand on the flower with a bit of pressure to flatten it back out again. When I removed my hand I had my fingerprints embossed into the flower. This made me think I could possibly emboss these little flowers. So I reheated the same flower for about 30 seconds or until it started to curl upwards, placed it in one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders and just pressed down on the folder with my hand and.... voila.... it was embossed. Wanna see the pictures??
