Busy Book - Simple Button Flowers Page

I wanted to incorporate buttons somewhere into my busy book. I saw this simple flower page and thought it was adorable. I've seen much more complex button flower pages, but this one was simple (and therefore quicker) and super cute at the same time. So, I pretty much copied it.

Busy Book / Quiet Book Page - Simple Button Flowers Page

I cut out all the pieces and attached the sun, flower stems, and petals first. Then I sewed on the buttons. The flowers are simple two layer circles. I taught myself how to use the buttonhole feature on my sewing machine (much easier than I expected) and put button holes in the two-layer felt circles. Then I used my pinking shears to jazz up the edges of two of the flowers and finally sewed the edges together with a simple circle.
