Project Instructions

Note: Download and print pattern before beginning.

Cut scrapbook paper into 30 6"x6" squares.  

Fold the paper diagonally, creating a triangle.  

Fold the sides up towards the top of the triangle. It should now look like a 3"x3" square.  

Take the piece you just folded and fold it down to the left edge of the square. Repeat for the other side.  

With each fold just created, lift up, then press down.  

Fold the flap back and create a smaller triangle on both sides.  

Fold the piece on the side half way on both sides.  

Secure with glue, creating the first petal.  

Make four more petals, for a total of five. Glue them together to form the first flower.  

Repeat Steps 2-10 five more times for a total of six flowers. Set flowers aside.  

Thread floss through five buttons as shown and knot. Glue to center of five of the flowers.  

Point backs of five of the flowers (with buttons in center) inward to create a ring and glue the sides together.  

Set sixth flower over top, flower pointing up and glue as shown.  

Wrap ribbon around middle of votive as shown and secure with glue in the back.  

Thread floss through button as shown and knot. Glue over ribbon.  

Set votive on top of sixth flower pointing up.
