What You'll Need:
Templates
Scissors
Felt
Needle and thread
Button
Pin back (optional)
Fabric glue (optional)

How To Make It:
1. Using the templates, cut out two large flowers and four small flowers in the fabric of your choice. 
2. Cut the petals where the dotted lines are on the template. 
3. Layer the two large flowers on top of each other. 
4. Fold the small flowers in half and overlap them (like closing a moving box) on top of the large flowers. 
5. Stitch the center to hold everything together. 
6. Cover a button with fabric and sew on to the flower center. 
7. Optional: Sew or glue a pin back to a small round piece of felt. 
8. Optional: Attach the empty side of the felt to the back of the flower.
