Here is what you will need to make a darling flower clip. You can use a lighter instead of the wood burner (if you do not have one). Just be really careful....Please.
Remove the back end of the flower, the part that holds it all together.
I used to painstakingly glue each petal stack together so it would stay when I attached it to the clip. But I have a better way:
Take your wood burner or lighter and hold it to the plastic in the middle. This will of course melt it.
Working quickly, use your needle nose pliers or another flat metal surface to flatten out the melted plastic.
These are my little Goosie's fingers. She loves to help! But knows not to touch the "Green thing." EVER. (That is what I call my wood burner) :)
You will now have a flat surface where you can add your lined clip. And it will lay nicely instead of NOT. And by melting the plastic center the flower will not come apart and you do not have to glue each individual layer.
The finished product.
Absolutely adorable in piggies or attached to crochet headband which you can find at...
