|I've been making the sweetest flowers after I saw someone selling Kanzashi flowers. I tried to replicate one and could not figure out how in the world it was done.
After some hunting, I found both a website with a tutorial and then a wonderful book on it and I immediately ordered the book.
(This tutorial does not mention adding fusible interfacing to a thin fabric, like cotton, as an option. )
cut and paste this to see the book~
Get the book, it's only 15 dollars and you will learn a lot more.
The tutorial is just the basic technique.

BEWARE - these are addicting as they are quick and easy to make once you figure it out (takes a couple of flowers to get it right). They require very little supplies.
Also, If you want a 3 inch flower - cut out a 3 inch square- etc.
On your first fold iron that but not the other folds.
The smaller the flower, the more petals you need (try 8).
The leaf is made by using the other side and by cutting out a much larger square.
