Video Tutorial Here – Full picture tutorial below:

1 – Cut out Pattern

 Print up the pattern ( like to print this pattern on card stock), cut out and trace circles onto cloth, cut out cloth.

For pattern b you will snip slits between the rounded corners to make the “petals”. Tip – it is better to snip too little than to much try to keep them short – less than half way to the center.

For pattern B cut out a circle of the first pattern to be the bottom of the flower ( this will help hold the flower together better – it will be the same size circle as you the largest one you use from pattern b.  So if you make a flower you used up to size 5, you will cut a size 5 circle of the non-petal pattern to cup the rest of the flower.  It makes the flower neater and prevents the “petals” from drooping).

2 – Burn baby. burn!

Light the candle (be sure to have adult supervision) carefully burn the edges of the fabric

– more if you want a vintage look, less if you just want it to be nicely finished. (This takes some practice so be patient, but it all comes together in the end –  mess ups are nearly impossible to see).
The fabric will get hot and can light on fire – be careful ( By the way you do this at your own risk – I’ve singed fingers doing this.)

3 – Stack and arrange the flower

 After you have singed all the edges, stack the circle inside each other ( you may have to remove some circles to get the flower to lay right)

4  – Glue it all together

 Glue each circle to secure (you can also sew them together)

5 – Add some drama

Glue a jewel in the center to cover up the stitches, or just to add some fun drama.

6 – Attach a ribbon or clip to the back

Cover one side of the barrette/ clip with ribbon using hot glue – then glue to the back of the flower.
You could also glue pin back to it as well.  I’ve seen some people put both a pin and a clip backing on the flower to make it more versatile.  Personally I just like the clip because my little girls wear these.

The button medallions are super easy to make!

You will need:

a button
8 inches of ribbon
glue gun

1 – Cut ribbon and glue

Cut two pieces of 4 inch ribbon.  Fold in each side to center (wrong sides together) and glue.

2 – glue ribbons together add button

Glue the two ribbons together making a “plus sign”.  Then glue the button on top and your finished!

    I would like to suggest a tool instead of a candle or a lighter….versa-tool you can shop and find them for less than 25 dollars but you can use it on wood, for stenciling, soldering…and for burning edges on fabrics and ribbons.
