Sorry for the nighttime pictures, but I’m playing catch-up!

Supplies:

  • Felt circles in varying sizes (I used a sizzix die to cut these in four sizes between 1.5″ and 3″)
  • Hot glue gun

Start with one of the smallest circles and roll up like this, securing with a dab of hot glue.

On another of the smallest size circles, put a line of hot glue.

Roll around the first rolled circle.

Hold till the glue starts cooling.

Should look about like this.

Add another small circle following the same procedure.

Should look like this.

Once you have a complete circle of “petals” around the center rolled petal, start the next larger size.

I find it works a little better if you pinch the larger petal at the bottom, then add the glue and apply to the flower.

Should look like this.  You can trim off the excess felt now or wait till the end to cut it all off at once. When you have a full layer of this size petals, you can move up to the next larger size following the same procedure again.

When you like the size, just stop, trim off any excess felt on the bottom and use in the project of your choice!  You can add a pin back for a brooch or use to decorate with….OR you can hold on to them for a project I will post soon that uses these!

The flower on the left is made with four sizes of circles, the one on the right just uses three.
