Perfect for proms and valentines day. We made some of these during Valentines day. Instead of going with the typical red rose, we made felt buttons to give out to our employees.

I have seen these felt roses before and wondered how to make them and if they would be worth making and now I see this tutorial and how easy and quick they are to make and I am wondering why it took so long. This carnation rose can be put on purse, made as single or cluster for a headband, as a brooch, and so on. Great tutorial and looks like a lot of fun. Anyone can make these.

i love this one too, i am going to make this one for my mother for easter,she can wear it on her jacket,she will love this pin.

Fun Button is a brand name, basically it is a round pin back. It is a 2 1/4 inch button similar to the ones that have campaign slogans on them.

I work with felt making baby shoes and I too want to know what a fun button is so I can make your carnation flower

I love this!

I know this may sound funny but what is a fun button?

Very pretty...but it would look like a carnation if it was cut with the pinking sheers!

it said to use the pinking scissors to make the flower look like a real carnation. i have made one and its lush.

Hola, super linda la flor. Muchas gracias. Besitos.
