Take your floral pick and start wrapping the wire around the middle of the folded dollar bills.

When the wire is wrapped, take some floral tape and wrap that around the wire to secure it.  The tape is also useful as it covers the wire so the end isn’t poking out.

Your petals will be flat at first, so you will need to open them up and adjust your petals so that they look symmetrical and neat.  It will take a bit of adjusting to mess with them and make them look their best.

This is what the back looks like when you are done.

Place a few of these in a poinsettia plant – they blend in nicely and are an added bonus to a Christmas gift!!  🙂
