These flowers took minutes to make with added drying time in between.
I used E6000 to glue everything since it forms a strong bond to suede and plastic. You can also use faux suede or faux leather!

How to Make The Small Suede Flower – 3 Easy Steps
To make a small suede flower, print out the template from the Supplies List above and cut out seven petals. Use this template as a guide. Do not worry about making them perfect.
Fold each petal in half and use a dab of E6000 on the inside end as shown below. Use metal binder clips to hold each petal in place and let dry for at least 25 minutes.
Glue the petals using E6000 to a suede circle (about .75″ in diameter). When all of the petals are in place, let it set up for a few minutes then add a generous amount of glue to the center of the flower and sprinkle beads or pearls onto the center. Let the completed flower dry for at least 25 minutes.
TIP: To add the flower to a headband, I recommend gluing wrapped twine to the headband first. This will give the flower a good base to stick to.
