Step 1: Gather materials
Decorative button or earring for center
Glue gun and glue sticks
Pin back or hair clip
Step 2: Cut fabric squares
Step 5: Push in center portion
If you are confused at this point, you can also try an alternative method. Follow this link. Follow steps 1 and 2 from this origami instruction, then fold in half so that triangular flaps are on the outside.
Step 6: Fold both side flaps up
Step 7: Sew through tip
Step 8: Cut off excess
Step 9: Repeat to make additional petals
*Tip- When stringing your petals, you use the same technique as stringing popcorn for garland. Don't tie off between each one, this will lead to mess and is just too much work when it can be done so much more easily. When you have the right amount strung on the thread, you can bring the two ends of the thread together, arrange your petals and tie the two ends together, but not too tightly lest the flower shrivel up and go wonky.
Step 10: Tie off thread and glue center
*Tip- Yes, there will be a hole. It is ok. This allows your flower to be more circular and regular-looking. We deal with the hole in this manner: Fill with hot-glue blob, cover pretty side with a button, large sequin, felt flower, bottle cap, knocked-out tooth, picture of your dog, a penny, a ribbon rosette, anything. And put your pin back/hair clip into the back of the glue blob, thus anchoring it securely and safely in the gentle caress of the hot-glue.
