Tutorial - Magnolias

For this projects you will need : 

  • - A small piece of card stock for the petal template

  • - Scissors

  • - A strip of white satin fabric (about 3x30)

  • - A scrap of yellow satin

  • - A scrap of green satin (optional)

  • - A candle

  • - A glue gun

  • Cut your petal templates from the cardstock - you need on large and a smaller one (about 2/3 of the large one 
  • Cut 5 large petals and 5 small one (plus one large green if you want to add a leaf

  • Singe the edge of each petal to prevent fraying 
  • Fold a small accordion at the wider end of each petal and glue it with a bead of hot glue 


  • Glue the 5 large petals together - It will look like a star
  • Glue the 5 smaller petals offsetting to line up in the gaps from the large one

  • Glue the small piece of yellow satin rolled into a cone in the center I added some pearl from broken costume jewelry
