A Pretty easy Flower

This is a fun little project that costs next to nothing and is pretty cool! 

I found it on this WEBSITE and just had to run to my craft room  ahem  I meant STUDIO and give it a try.    I couldn't believe how easy they were to make.  You can check out the video tutorial at  Gauche Alchemy or just follow along with my pictures.  I must say, the video tutorial is pretty awesome just in case you have any difficulties following my pictures.

I started with seven - 3 1/2 inch squares.













Now make six more.  You need seven total.

Hot glue each section to the next.


After you have all seven glued together, join the two ends to make your flower complete.




Now you can add a pretty jewel or a button.


I had pipe cleaners on hand, so I folded it in half and twisted it together to make it a wee bit stronger.


Shove it in the end with a dab of hot glue.



Cheers!
