When I asked Sadie if she liked this flower, she said,"yeah...? It's a circle." Well said, darling.
Here's how I made it!
felt (I use a wool felt blend)
hot glue gun
First you'll need to cut out a bunch of leaf shapes, mostly large pieces, plus a few small ones. I used this die on my Go Baby! cutter, which was great. I also cut out two 3" circles with this die.
Then Cut the leaf pieces in half.
You won't need this many small ones, but I wasn't sure so I cut a bunch.
Then dab some hot glue in the center of the flat end of the petal. Squeeze the flat end together and let it dry.
Then dab some glue and fold back the two loose ends to create a petal that looks like this!
Keep gluing until you can glue them around the outside of the circle!
Then add another circle on top of the first circle.
I added a circle of small petals on top of the last circle, then made a tiny scalloped flower and glued that on top.
Then cut two slits on the other circle piece near the top, to fit the pin through. Put it through the slits, then dab some glue between the pin back and felt circle.
Then glue the pin circle to the back of the flower, and you're done! (well, except for picking off all the glue strings. Have fun with that)
You could of course add these to a headband or clip as well, and they'd be cute in any size!
