  • Layer the felt piece on top of the vintage circle and sew 4 tiny pearls through all layers to finish.
  • To create flower #2, punch a 1 ½” circle from vintage paper and fold, crinkle and sand carefully for a worn effect.
  • Holding both pieces of vintage crepe paper circles in your hand, carefully snip all around towards the center to create petals.
  • Sew on button through all layers.
  • To create flower #3, punch a 1 ½” circle from vintage paper and fold, crinkle and sand carefully for a worn effect.
