Step 1: Thread the flower piece end on yarn needle. Roll the work adding whip stitches to secure it as you go.

Step 2: Add the stamens with a hot glue gun.

Tip! The variation in your flower occurs in how you roll your work. If you want a smaller and taller flower, roll your flower tighter with the sc layers right on top of each other. If you need a larger, rounder flower, roll your flower more loosely with the sc layers stacked rather than right on top of each other.
