Vintage Button Felt Flower Tutorial by Dana Tatar
I'm sharing a quick and easy flower tutorial today that uses felt and some vintage findings and buttons from Zeus and Zoe. These flowers would be perfect for a soft romantic page or as a fun embellishment for a fall or winter themed project.

Die-Cut Felt Flower Petals and Base
Step One: Cut two flowers from a piece of felt using your favorite flower die. Also cut a small circle from a piece of felt for the base of the flower.

Step Two: Cut the flower petals apart. Cut one set of petals to about 1-inch in length. Cut the second set of petals to about 3/4-inch in length.

Step Three: Pinch the bottom of each petal together and secure with a drop of hot glue.

Step Four: Glue the 6 larger petals to the felt circle. Glue the 6 smaller petals on top of the larger petal base.

Step Five: Glue a vintage button to the center of the flower to finish.
