OK, so this is a bit of a no-brainer, but I just joined and figured I'd contribute something.  So there! Tongue

Here comes the tutorial, ready?

You need:

Silk flower(s)
Coordinating fabric(s)
Dritz covered button kit in size of your choice (I got this 3/4" in Joann)
Needle nosed pliars
Hot glue gun + glue
Skissers
Fabric pen/pencil for tracing
Clip of your choice (spring, bendy, bobby pin, etc)

And helpful (albeit thoroughly confused) assistant, of course

Step 1: Ruin the flowers (this is my favorite part)
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4478.JPG

Step 2: Glue leaf to the underside of the bottom petal set
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4479.JPG

Step 3: Glue clip to leaf
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4480.JPG

Step 4: Start gluing petal sets one at a time, making sure the center holes match up
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4482.JPG

Step 5: Trace and cut out some fabric petal sets (I did 2 for this one)

http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4488.JPG

Step 6: Continue adding petal sets until you're reasonably happy

Step 7: Complain about all the glue on your thumb ("#%$@&!!!")
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4492.JPG

Step 8: Cut out a circle of fabric for your center button (I used minky, but you can use whatever.  Don't worry, the kits come with a template on the back.)
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4493.JPG

Step 9: Place the fabric over the white plastic mold, and stuff the button dome into the center
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4495.JPG

Step 10: Remove the hook from the button back
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4494.JPG

Step 11: Tuck the fabric into the button, put the back in place, and pop it into place with the blue plastic button back popper thing.  (If you're using minky and are a wuss like me, you'll have to put the whole ensemble under a couch leg and jump on the couch.)

Step 12: Glue the button to the center of the flower...

...Tada!  I even frayed the edges of the fabric for some extra funk after taking that last pic.  Oh, and please excuse my finger toes! Roll Eyes

1. your tutorial is hilarious. thank you for that.

2. your daughter is adorable.

3. and i really like these flowers too, and as obvious as making them might seem, i would not have known how to do that without screwing it up 4 times first.
