Here is a picture tutorial for you!  A very easy project that requires you to have a sewing machine (to sew the ribbon for the edging).  If you don't sew, just omit the ribbon edging or sew it with a needle and thread!

Click on the images to enlarge them and to see the directions.

Stitch the top and pull tight to form a flower.

Adhere a pre made flower for the center, stitching it in place.

Here is a close up of the Shimmerz spritzed canvas and that cute bicycle stamp from Unity Stamp Co (Melody Ross Collection).

I finished off the back with a piece of fabric that was die cut with a circle die cut from Spellbinders. See that FAUX suede leaf ribbon from May Arts?  Cute isn't it!  I used my Glue Gun from Glue Arts to adhere the fabric circle.
