Tsumami Kanzashi Flower - How to make an autumnal maple leaf

Here is how to make an autumnal maple leaf pin. Materials are 1 square pieces of 3.0cm x 3.0cm, 2 of 2.5 x 2.5cm, 2 of 2.25 x 2.25cm, 2 of 2.0 x 2.0cm rayon chirimen(crepe) fabricrounded cardboard (2cm diameter), rayon chirimen (crepe) fabric to cover the cardboard, and a hairpin. Also glue and tweezers are needed. 

I am writing briefly... maple leaf is made from pointed petals.  Same as rounded petal 1 & 2. 

1. Fold the fabric in half and make it triangle.
2. Fold again in half and make a smaller triangle. 
3. Place the tweezers at the center and fold it again and make a triangle one more time.

One pointed petal completed. 
4. Then, make 7 petals and place on the glue board for a while.

5. Cover the rounded cardboard with wood bond by fabric, and place the wood bond on a hairpin. Place 7 petals on it. The biggest petal in center and put the smaller petals on the both sides.

6. Adjust the shape. I put rhinestones, isn't it pretty?

Now I started Tsumami Kanzashi Flower workshop. Let's make this pretty hairpin together.
