I cut out a strip of red material 3 5/8″ wide using the 3 5/8″ square template to fold it over. Then I traced the 3 1/2″ flower on, slid the template out and then cut out the flower.
First I roll all four colors in my hands to get them squished up a little bit. Then I roll one to time for a few seconds to get them a little shabbier. The longer you roll the shabbier they look.
Second layer, which is the white layer, I used the 2 3/4″ flower template.
When folding the bigger 2 layers of petals, hold two petals up to up to meet in the middle of one petal and then fold in together. However leave the side facing you slightly more towards the left so you have a flower petal bigger than 90 degrees. That will help close up any gaps.
For the blue with white stars later, I used the 2″template. Try to make these petals exactly 90° when folded since they are the top layer. Since they are smaller, petals they’re much easier to line up at 90 degrees.
Top with an 18 millimeter rhinestone, and choice of back mount.
When comparing the old flower clip to the new flower clip, it appears that maybe the biggest layer was a bit smaller than 3 1/2″, maybe 3 1/4″ and the white layer may have been 2 1/2″. But the 2″ top layer looks appropriate. New one on left, old one on right.
