Assembly
To make the center of the flower.
Thread center: Fold the business card in half lengthwise and wrap the variegated pastels around the short end 20 times. Cut a separate piece of the variegated pastels about 10" long and thread it on a needle. Pass the needle through the open end of the card and tie the strands of thread together on the open side. Tie very tight. Remove thread from card. Cut the folded ends of the thread off leaving about 5/8" to ¾" long. Thread the ends through the center of the flower.

Poke the wire end of the stamen through the same hole in the flower through the variegated threads.

Wrap the floral tape around the wire and thread ends to make a stem. Wind very tight starting at the top just under the head and working your way down then back up again. Try to catch the bottom of the flower in the tape. Like you would see on the bottom of real flowers.

Slide the leaves onto the stem and bring them up to the head and arrange them so they are in a snowflake form. 6 petals around. :) *

Cut the satin ribbon in half and tie both pieces around stem right at the base of the head. You may want to glue it into place to make it secure.

Glue the magnet to the back.
