Cut a strip of the center felt color 3″x1″

Cut 2 green leaves

Cut multiple circles of both sizes…I think I used about 5-6 of each size.

(all of these pieces are in the pattern in case you just want to use that to cut them out!)

Cut your circles as shown, for the petals. Discard the center pieces.

Take the strip (It’s longer in these photos because I ended up chopping 1″ off), and run a thin line of glue along one long edge and then press the edges together. let cool.

Then snip every 1/8″ with sharp scissors along the folded over edge. End your slits 1/8″ from the glued edge.
