Picture of How to make a kanzashi (folded fabric) flower pin
These make lovely pins or hair clips. A couple of these make a nice gift by themselves or as package topper. (This tutorial was originally posted by me on Craftster.)

Step 1: Gather materials

You will need:
Fabric remnant
Matching thread
Sewing needle
Decorative button or earring for center
Glue gun and glue sticks
Pin back or hair clip

You made a very beautiful flower pin. :)
I was thinking about making stamen. I bought these long silver pins with blunt points that are supposed to be used for jewelry making. Then I threaded a pearly bead, followed by a clear earring back. The wire bends easily enough, so for attachment, I was planning to poke the pin into the fabric, make a loop, and add a few stitches.

this is really cute! I am making one out of notebook paper for practice (and beacuse I don't have any scrap material at work) and it's looking pretty good for my first one!
