- 16 pieces of delicate cream ribbon – 5*5 cm;
- 8 pieces of purple ribbon – 5*5 cm;
- 16 pieces of silver brocade-2.5*2.5 cm ( you need to make simple sharp petals from these squares, but do not cut the petals from the bottom);

Kanzashi flower in 11 steps
Total Time: 50 minutes
Prepare the pieces of ribbon
Singe all cuts of the ribbon so that the ribbon does not fall apart. Four-layer petals will be made of squares with a side of 5 cm in purple, cream and silver. Unusual rhombuses for the top layer will be made of lilac squares.
Fold a triangle from a square
Bend in half the purple squares (6 pieces) with a 5 cm side to make the top layer details.
Make a petal from a triangle
Bend the squares again. You should get triangles. Fix the central fold with your fingers or a needle, and return the side corners in front. Gather the petal in the lower part, squeeze the bottom with your fingers, cut off the excess and glue it together. Volumetric blank with folds is ready.
Sew lilac petals for the flower
Collect 6 beautiful lilac petals on a thread. Pick up a hugger with a chameleon. Decoration for the middle can be different.
Use cream and purple square pieces
Bend three squares (2 cream and 1 purple) twice separately. You will get triangles.
Make a multi-layer petal
Layer one triangle on another, and leave a dark detail inside. Close the corners. Cut off the lower part. You will get a petal in the form of a boat with one acute angle.
Create silver pieces
Make small petals of silver brocade in the same way. Do not cut the bottom part. You need to make 16 petals.
Unite the pieces for a petal
Insert 8 silver pieces in the middle of large cream-purple petals.
Sew the petals together
Sew the parts with thread. Leave the rest of the details for additional decoration.
Glue all the parts for the flower
Glue a beautiful flower. Attach a lilac flower with a center on top. Glue 8 silver parts between the main petals.
Process the reverse side of the flower
Glue a circle of felt on the back of the kanzashi flower.
The flowers are completely ready. You just need to find a hairpin and stick a kanzashi flower on it.
