Picture of Tiny Tulips 3D Beaded Flowers
These are very tiny tulips great for earrings or make a few for a mini bouquet. If you are having trouble manipulating the tiny beads try using bigger ones to get the technique down then try the smaller ones.

Add 4 beads and go into the next bead on the base ring. Do this five more time to make a complete rotation around the base ring. You should have what looks like a 6-pointed star.

After exiting the sixth bead in the base ring, run the needle through the first two beads that you added.

Step 4: Row 3

Add 2 beads and go down into the next bead on the same point. Then come up through the second bead on the next point. Add 2 more beads and continue down through the next bead. Continue and make a complete rotation. At the end of the row pass the needle through the next corner bead an the one above it. This will start to form a cup shape.

Step 5: Rows 4-6

Continue adding 2 beads the same way as in row 3. Jumping up to start a new row at the end of each rotation. Do this for 3 full rotations. Remember to hold the work so that it keeps its cup shape.

Step 6: Row 7

Add 3 beads and go down through one bead. Add 1 bead and come up through the next corner bead. Repeat this for 1 full rotation. This will make the edge of the tulip flare out and make some nice petal points.
