Brighten someone's day with a bouquet of these everlasting blooms.
Approximate Time: Less than 1 hour
- 3-inch fabric squares
- rubber bands
- green chenille stems
Stack four 3-inch fabric squares so that all the edges match up. Starting from one end, fan fold the stack to create 1/2 inch wide pleats. Tightly wrap a rubber band around the center. Sandwich the pleated stack between the bend of a folded chenille stem. Twist the ends together just below flower to form a stem. Separate the fabric layers to form a ruffled flower. Using scissors, trim any unwanted strings from the cut edges. Create several of these to form a bouquet.

I cut several cans using kitchen scissors, then used flowers die-cut by Sizzix to cut forms. I then mounted several layers to make this colorful brooch.
