Fold the recycled paper into half.  Cut a piece of lace and stick it to the centre of the card’s front flap to make stem for the flower. Now, cut few leaves from green fabric and tuck beneath the green lace. Next, make flower petals (3 different shapes and each slightly smaller to the last) using yellow, red, orange fabrics. Once, you complete layering each petals above other, glue down. Give a final touch by adding a colourful plastic button on topmost petal whorl to complete the fabric flower's center.
