1 – Cut out pattern

Print up the pattern (you can get assembly instructions here)

Cut out pattern pieces.

2 – Begin to Build the flower

Taking the Smallest piece (piece 1) Fold it so two of the petals meet. Snip small slits into the flower.  Fold again so the other two petals meet and snip two more slits,  You should have fours slits that form a box (see pictures). Taking care that none of the slits run into each other.

 

3 – Begin threading the flower.

Cut your ribbon so you have 2 six inch strips.  With right side of fabric facing up, thread one across from right to left , and thread the other across top to bottom flip over.

For the piece number two, instead of folding it in half petal to petal, you are going to fold it so it looks like half and X.  Cut two small slits, fold in half again the other way and cut two small slits, to form the box like in step 2.  The reason you are folding it differently is that this causes the petals to stagger, making it look great!  For piece 3 you will fold it petal to petal.  Alternate between the two folding methods for each piece.

4 – thread and build, then tie off.

Line up your four slits with the ribbon and pull the ribbon through each piece.  Once you have mad the flower the size you want, tie the ribbons together and slide a clip under them.  If you would like glue a jewel or a charm to the center.  It’s finished!
