This didn’t come with a DIY…but as you can see…it is made of different size circles…each a tiny bit smaller than the other…layer will all kind of fabric patterns…scatter a touch of lace…netting…crochet rounds and more…once you have them stacked you sew directly in the center with a bead…pearl…button…etc…and attach them…pulling really tightly in the center. What you will get is a beautiful bloom…be careful…you will probably get addicted! ENJOY!
