Measure the length of chain you would like for your necklace, open the loops of the chain on either end and attach to metal bail. To make your clasp, find the center of your chain and open the loops there and attach a clasp on either end.
To make flowers, place two layers of canvas fabric over die templates, using Standard Circles LG and Classic Scalloped Circles LG, using desired sizes. Feed through die cut machine twice (back and forth) to ensure cutting.
With scissors, cut a spiral pattern into the die cut circles. The center should have about a quarter sized circle shape, this will be the bottom of the flower.
From the outside, start rolling the flower into the center and place a good amount of hot glue to the center circle piece in the middle and hold rolled flower on top.
Spritz flower with dye sprays (look for non-running, non-bleeding dyes). To get a distressed look, spritz the flower with one color, and spray a darker color onto a non-porous surface and dip the flower into the darker color. Let dry and adhere button for the center with hot glue.
Die cut three small Standard Circles LG die cuts from felt for the back. Adhere hot glue to the bottom of flower, place on metal bail, apply fabric glue to the circle of felt to secure the flower on the bail.
