corsage tutorial

This is my first attempt on making a tutorial...as I promised I would make a tutorial of the flowercorsage. I used a japanese crafting book, but changed the pattern a little bit. It was more difficult to make a tutorial, as specially when I consider the making of the corsage itself is far more easy. But here we go...

You need four pieces of felt (2 times 8x10 cm and 2 times 8x15 cm). Fold those pieces and cut it in every 0,5 cm until 1 cm from the edge. For the back part of the corsage you need 2 pieces of round felt, diameter 6 cm and a piece of cardboard diameter 5,5 cm. and of course thread, a safety pin and a little piece of felt to attach the safety pin on the back. first apply the larger pieces (15 cm) of felt to the background and then the smallest pieces (10 cm), of which the last piece is rolled up and stitched before applying to the corsage. Hope the pictures will explain the rest...if not just ask me so I can explain it better...have a flowery day!
