green flower TUTORIAL

Want to learn how to make one of these??



Step 1: Trace circles onto the fabric. {Must be the shiny synthetic fabric so it will melt when heated, cotton fabric will just burn.} I used 5 circles, you can use more if you want it to be bigger

.



Step 2: Cut them out. I added a few snips with my scissors so the petals were more defined. That is optional.



Step 3: Using tongs of pliers, hold each circle a few inches above the flame of a candle so the edges melt. I lined my counter with a piece of tin foil so I could set the circles down right after.





This is what they looked like after that step.



Step 4: Glue them all together with glue gun. Add a button or jewel to the centre.



And now you have a ca-ute flower to add to whatever your heart desires.



Happy crafting!
