Cut out all of the felt pieces.
Place the two flower cutouts together as shown below.
Place the piece of circle felt in the center of the top flower.
Place the leaf pieces under the bottom flower, making sure that all pieces are are touching the center of the flower.
Prepare needle and thread. Flip the flower over and start stitching where the leaves overlap. Pushing the needle to the front of the flower, coming up inside the round circle felt.
Turn the flower back to the front side. Stitch around the circle middle, being sure to stitch through all the pieces of felt.
Continue stitching all the way around the circle, then pull the needle to the back of the flower.
Tie a knot or two in the thread. Then cut off an extra thread.
Cut out a small piece of felt to cover the paperclip, as shown below.

Be sure to only cover and glue the top part of the paper clip.
