Sugared Fruit

This Holiday Season I'm trying for easy to accomplish with maximum WOW built in. This tray of sugared fruit is made from an assortment of accordion folded circles.
I cut the assorted sizes of circles using the
Although each piece of fruit has a variety of accordion sizes they are each made from a single circle of paper and follow these steps:

Step 1:Cut a 4 inch circle from cardstock.
Step 2:Score your circle into 16ths as shown in box 1 and box 2
Step 3:Cut a 1.5 inch circle out of the center.
Step 4:Bunch center of the circle together to create an accordion flower, secure to a paper circle base with adhesive. I use hot glue which looks a tad messy so I add a paper circle on top.
If you make accordion folds from circles 2.5inches or smaller you will need to cut a 1inch circle from the center.

Stop by the SWAT blog to get the list of dimensions for each piece of fruit.
Paper:Authentique, October Afternoon, Carta Bella, Simple Stories
