Cut out the center of lips pattern to create two defined lips. Trace around these lips on red felt and cut out.

Cut out highlights from hot pink felt. Glue to red lips with Fast Grab Tacky Glue. Let dry.
Determine lengths/number of pearls needed to create “teeth” inside lips as shown, with largest pearls in center and gradating toward smallest pearls at the corners of lips. Glue in place with Jewel-It Embellishing Glue. Let dry.
