  • 3-inch fabric squares
  • Rubber bands
  • Pipe cleaners


Festive Flowers - Step 1

1. Stack four 3-inch fabric squares so that all the edges match up.

2. Starting from one end, fold the stack accordion style to create 1/2-inch-wide pleats, then tightly wrap a rubber band around the center.

3. Sandwich the pleated stack between the bend of a folded pipe cleaner, then twist together the ends to form a stem.

4. Separate the fabric layers to form a round, ruffled flower and remove any shaggy threads from the cut edges.
