Felt Flower Tutorial

I have had people asking me to post a tutorial for this felt flower brooch for a while, and I finally got around to making one.  This time I made a yellow one & I really like how it turned out.
 This glittered felt flower is not too hard to make. It's a really great idea to give as a gift, and it fits perfectly into an origami box made with 12in x 12in paper. :)  This project turned out to be difficult to photograph, so I drew it for you. 

materials

You need:
  •  glue gun
  • felt
  • one pearl bead
  • glitter
  • fastener/brooch pin
_____________________

Step one 
  • Cut 5 of each size of petal, large, medium and small. (Cut 5 extra large petals to make flower more full.)
  • Cut one circle
  • cut one scalloped piece
 
______________________

Step two
Glitter each petal and the scalloped piece

 
__________________________________

 Step three
  • Cut middle of each petal almost half way up
  • Fold and glue one side to the other
  • Repeat till all petals are shaped
 
_____________________________

Step four
  • Glue the largest petals to your circle first
  • Glue medium  petals on top of large then small etc...
_______________________ 

Step five
  •  Roll the scalloped piece and glue to center of flower
  • glue pearl into middle of rolled scalped piece

 Finally attach  brooch pin to the back
And you're done!
