Start with printing the template and cutting out. Cut out one 2 ½ by 5-inch felt rectangle for every pair of leaves, and fold it in half lengthwise. Now crease it with an iron set to wool.

Trace the template using a folded rectangle and cut out the shape. Unfold your rectangle. In order to make the four-leaf design, cross 2 felt shapes and attach at the center using a low-temp glue gun.

For the two-leaf design, dab a little glue at the center of one felt shape and fold it angling the leaves. Now, glue desired embellishments to the front and a barrette or a bar pin to the back.
