  • Silver embroidery thread

  • Needle

  • 10 paillettes

  • 4 beads

  • Magna-Tac glue


  1. Make the flower center: Use needle and thread to string 5 paillettes and the beads, beginning with a paillette and alternating. Tightly gather thread to form paillettes and beads into an open book shape. Knot thread, and trim excess.

  2. Make the flower base: Arrange remaining 5 paillettes in an overlapping circle, like petals; secure with glue and let dry.

  3. Glue the flower center to the flower base; let dry.
