Here's my first try at these kool flowers!  I took me quite a while to do this first flower, but I think I have the hang of it now. I'm sure the next ones to follow will go smoother.

Here's a few more that I've made...

those are so neat!  thank you so much for the tutorial!  I've been wanting to know how to make that type...  but so much sewing!  these will be reserved for special people.   Wink

don't know if this is obvious, but a good way to cut down on the sewing effort is to cut your thread pretty long, and then don't cut it off and reknot your thread after each petal. just knot it at the end of the first petal, then in the thread about an inch away, and then again at the end of the next petal, making a strand of petals. then at the end, trim the thread to separate the petal pieces. the individual petals will hold together because you have knotted each one.

does that make sense?

So I do the glob of hot glue on the back, then I put a piece of small cardboard over that, then I hotglue the snappy clip for hair.  I make sure that I get it all over the clip and They still fall off the cardboard.

Any advice?

jennybean:  I actually don't knot my thread at all until I have ALL the petals strung.  That way you can pull the thread to tighten them or loosen them if they are not cooperating.  I just knot it at the very begining so it stays in, string them along  and then knot at the end once I get them arranged.

Elwood:  Two things could be going on.  1.  Make sure you are putting the stationary side of the hairclip into the glue.  This is the peice that dose not bend when you snap it open and closed.  And 2.  I don't use cardboard, I just stick mine into the blog of glue.  If it is the glue that is coming off the cardboard then it probably is not a good enough sticking surface and the glue is peeling right off.  Maybe try using a piece of felt or fabric if you need something to stabalize the back.

Everyone's flowers are looking so fantastic!

What are you having trouble with? I couldn't figure it out for the longest time! And last night BAM! It hit me, it's really easy once you get the hang of it. I was so frustrated but now have devoted myself to helping other craftsters with their picture hosting problems Smiley

For my backs...all I do is use old pin backs from my badge a minit that don't work right for me...I just smother the back with hot glue and press the back of my flower onto it. Its been working great for me so far.  I made a whole bunch for Valentine's day, my friends are wearing them, and they have held up so far. I know it hasn't been that long since V-day...but they really are sturdy if you use the pinbacks.  Maybe if any of you have those kickin' around you could give it a go...it worked for me.

good luck,
and everyone's flowers are so pretty...
