  2. I used: 8 strips - 5 inches on 3/4 of an inch (13 x 2 cm), 12 strips – 4.5 inches on 3/4 of an inch (11.5 x 2 cm), 6 strips – 4 inches on 3/4 of an inch (10 x 2 cm).
     
  3. Cut the edges of the strips to form an arrow. Punch a hole on each side.
     
  4. Cut 5 circles 3/4 of an inch (1.5 cm) in diameter. Punch two holes side by side to make the circles look like buttons. You can also use actual buttons.

  7. Twist the wire to form one strand.
     
  8. Start with the medium size strips. Thread the wire through the hole, loop the strip and thread the wire through the other hole. Continue to thread all 6 strips.

  9. Separate the wire and add another button. The button makes it easier to handle the layers while you are assembling the flower.
     
  10. Add the next layer of loops, large size.

  14. Take a wooden skewer and push it through the middle of the flower. Thread the loops on the skewer to create leafs.
