Felt Flower Name tag Tutorial

I made these fun name tags for a blogger meet up for I Heart Salt Lake last week.
I wanted something different than the usual name tags & the felt flower name tags were really easy to make.
Here is how I made them.

Glue gun
Pin backs

Step 1:
Cut 7 felt circles. Mine were 2 1/2" diameter.

Step 2:
Prepare the petals by taking one felt circle and fold in half.

Step 3:
Place a small dot of glue in the middle of the felt, near the folded edge and fold in half again.

It should now look like this.
Repeat with 5 more felt circles so you have a total of 6 petals. 

Step 4:
Place a small dot of glue on the corner of the petal and place on the remaining felt circle, as pictured below.

Step 5:
Repeat step 4 until you have 4 petals on the flat felt circle.

Step 6:
Place a generous amount of glue in the center of the flower as pictured below.
Step 7:
With the point down place the remaining 2 petals in the hot glue in the center of the flower.

Step 8:
Cut a felt leaf and glue it to the corner of a strip of cardstock, then glue the end to the back of the flower.
I pre-printed names on the cardstock and cut the end in a V for extra detail.  

Step 9:
Glue a pin back to the backside of the flower.

You can also leave the paper plain and let guests write their own name.
These little flower pins are also fun for Mother's Day.
Write world's greatest mom or #1 mom. There are endless possibilities.
