Then, using a pen (I used a Sharpie) trace the flower shape onto your felt.
Next, using sharp scissors, cut out the flower, carefully.
Cut out one more the same way in another color.
After that, stack the flowers, and use your Crop-a-dile to punch a hole. I used the Crop-a-dile because the felt is too thick to be punched through with a regular hole punch.
Then, place a brad through the hole. This is an easy way to play around with the look of your flower by using different color brads, jewel brads, pearl brads, fabric brads, etc.
Now it's time to make your pretty flower into a pin! Place a bit of the E-6000 adhesive onto the back of your flower.
Next, place a pinback onto the glue and press firmly. Hold for a minute or so to make sure it adheres properly. Then, set it aside and allow about 30 minutes for it to completely dry.
Voila! You have now made a pretty felt flower pin! Another idea is to forgo the pinback and use the flower as an embellishment on a card or scrapbook page.
