Take a pencil and lightly draw a squiggly circle. You might get to the point where you can free-cut it out without drawing it first, but if you're like me....i'll stick with my pencil, thank you.
You can draw smaller or bigger circles depending on the size of flower you want to make. If you make too long of a circle, the flower won't turn out as well. Since I am horrible at explaining, I would just test out your first flower on a scratch paper so you don't mess up on your cute paper or felt. One more tip: be sure to not draw too tall of waves..the picture below is about as wavy as you should get. Too much, just makes your flower fall apart. (You don't have to draw waves at all if you don't want to, it just gives it a nice touch.)
Cut it out!
Start rolling up the circle from the outside-in.
Make sure to roll it somewhat snug. It will loosen up after you roll it.
All snug as a bug.
Then let go of the pressure, so the flower opens up and loosens.
(don't mind my finger nail polish...I was bored one night, ok?)
It should open up like this.
Take your wire and bend it at a 90 degree angle about 1/2 inch from the end.
Take your glue gun and dab some glue on what was the inside of the circle that you cut out.
Press the angled part of the wire on the glued part
I thought felt would be alot easier to work with, but for me it was harder. For one, a pencil doesn't show up. So I tried free-cutting it and uhh let's just say that didn't work out too well. So I used a thin sharpie to trace my circle. Just make sure that you cut off any of the sharpie before you roll it, or else it will show on your flower.
