Step 1 Cut the top of the water bottle and cut 5 lines towards the bottle cap making 5 petals. Step 2 Bend the "petals" back. Step 3 cut 5 rectangle pieces of fabric, Step 4 apply Mod Podge to the petals and glue the pieces of fabric on each petal. Step 5 cut the petals around - making the shape of a round petal.
