Project Instructions

Step 1 Make three gathered flowers. Cut a 6" length of ribbon. On one edge, make running stitches from one end to the other. Pull threads until the ribbon gathers and curls into a circle. Tack ribbon ends together.

Step 2 Make two open petal flowers: Stack three ribbon bows, arranging them to look like a flower. Stitch together at center.

Step 3 Make two hexagonal flowers. Wrap ribbon around three fingers, three times. Pinch and stitch through all layers at center. Pull loops apart, forming six overlapping petals.

Step 4 Stitch a glitter button to center of flower. Add bead to thread, sitting on top of button. Knot thread on back. Repeat with each flower, adding one or two stacked buttons with bead centers.

Step 5 Add bead center to large glitter button. Stitch into buttonhole from back, pick up three beads, and stitch back into buttonhole. Repeat five more times, alternating buttonholes. Knot on back. Repeat with one more large glitter button.

Step 6 Stitch or glue flowers to front of clutch. Glue gems, forming flowers, to fill in between buttons and flowers.
