Alice band
Cut round disks from felt and arrange in a circle and glue to a circular base (or stitch together). Then use buttons to decorate your centre. A little embroidery thread will provide some embellishment and can also be used to attach the flower to the Alice band.

Finger puppets
Search on the web for some lovely inspiration – there are wonderful ideas for finger puppets. Use a range of bright, popping colours to make your designs. I’ve taken the easy shapes to re-create the look.

Flower brooch
Cut out flower shapes, from smaller to bigger. Stack and sew together and attach a simple safety pin to the back.
