To begin, take a green bead and thread the end around and through it to make it secure so you don't have to worry about the beads falling off the end.
Add 2 (or more) green beads for your stem. Then begin your flower by threading four yellow petal beads and 1 purple center bead.
Bring your thread through the first yellow petal bead (the one next to the green bead) and pull all the way through. Be sure to make sure the beads are all nice and squeezed up together when it is all pulled together like so:
Add the last 2 petal beads and thread the end through the bead next to the purple center bead that is not attached to the green stem beads.
Pull it nice and taught (but don't pull too tight- just snug). Then begin the process again. Just continue the pattern until you reach the desired length. Then finish it how you choose. For Abby's bracelet, we tied off the ends and threaded them back through the beads.
