Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Create a scalloped flower template in three graduated sizes using card stock, poster board, or other stiff paper. Mine were approximately 4 inches, 3 inches, and 2 inches in diameter.
  2. You will need to cut 4 of each size from your desired fabric. Also, cut a 2-inch diameter circle from felt for the base.
  3. Begin with the largest size flower and fold it in half. Apply a dot of glue at the center of the folded edge (see photo).

  5. Fold the flower in half again, over the glue, to create a petal. Do this for all of your scalloped pieces.
  6. Using the largest petals, glue each one to the felt circle, with points meeting in the center.
  7. Glue the next size petals in the same manner, placing each one alternately on top of the first layer.
  8. Proceed in the same manner with the third layer.
  9. Turn flower over and glue on a pin back. Fluff up flower with your fingers so it doesn't lay flat.
