I REALLY like the simplicity of these flowers.  They are SO easy to make.

Start with a circular felt cut out about 4 inches in diameter.  Cut a spiral all the way from the edge to the center of the felt.  Curl and glue the spiraled felt until you've created a flower.  Although I added a button to a couple of these flowers, I think they are so pretty all by themselves.

If you notice, the red and brown flowers above have wavy edges.  Instead of cutting a straight line spiral (if that makes sense), cut a wavy line along your spiral.

The real deal:  It cost me about $0.20 to make one of these flowers.

How about you?  Do you prefer elaborate or simple flowers?

Go and be pretty,

    a) because my daughter's name is Olivia!

  9. Love, love, love. I want them on my bags, on my sweaters (you know, to distract people from the baby bump), and most of all, I want to stick an alligator clip on the back and tuck one into my daughter's hair. So fun!
