  2. 2

    Squeeze a small amount of glue on the centre of the 4-inch circle of organdie.

  3. 3

    Layer the 3-inch circle directly over the glued spot, matching up the centres evenly.

  4. 4

    Layer the remaining organdie circles in this manner with the very top circle being the 1-inch piece. This creates a frilly and ruffled flower.

  5. 5

    Squeeze a small amount of glue on the centre of the top layer.

  6. 6

    Press a buckeye firmly over the glued centre. This creates the centre of your organdie flower.

Tips and warnings

  • Glue a brooch fixture to the back of your organdie flower to create a wearable accessory, or make several to decorate your walls or scrapbooks.
  • Glue a series of organdie blossoms to pipe cleaners to create stemmed flowers for a vase creation.
