- Arrange three Maya Road Trinket Buttons onto the flower center, thread a sewing needle with three strands of embroidery floss, attach a button then bring the sewing needle up through the button hole once again and place a seed bead onto the sewing needle, now take the needle and go back down into the same hole to secure your seed beads as shown
You can create several flowers in different colors then attach a pin back to your flower and place it onto a bag or sew one or several to a headband. There are so many possibilities.
