Default Re: How do you make the Kanzashi flowers with the hole in the petal?

Now, make a smaller inside petal. Then, layer them on top of each other and bring the ends together and put your needle and thread through it. You can trim some of the back off if it's too much, but most of the time I leave it as is. The purple one was trimmed and the pink one was not. The pink one is a round petal kanzashi. Let me know if you need any help.
WOW those are beautiful!!! Thanks for the info. I am going to try them out so I might be asking for some help if I get confused. Thanks for sharing these and your pictures of them! I can't wait to try them. Hopefully they will work out and I will post pics of them.
