Flat Pasted Blossom

A conventional flower which makes a beautiful trimming may be made from

the pattern for the wired rose first given. Cut five petals (of any size

required) from velvet, and five the same size from silk or satin. Lay

the velvet petals wrong side up and cover with milliner's glue. Lay on

this a piece of tie wire one-quarter of an inch from the edge, allowing

an extension of ends of the wire at the bottom of the petal. Lay the

silk petal on top and press firmly. When dry arrange these five petals

around a cluster of yellow stamens, which have been fastened to a loop

of tie wire. This blossom should lie out flat when finished. Of course

the shape of the petals may be changed in any way desired.
