Step 4

Start rolling the felt at the spot where you started cutting into the square. Continue to roll until you get to the end of the spiral strip to create the rose.

Step 5

Turn the felt rose over and use a needle and thread to sew through the flower to keep everything in place. Or, if you'd rather not sew, you can use a hot glue gun.
