From the connection point, use 18-gauge half round wire to begin a wrap below the leaf connection point and wrap down the stem 4 or 5 times to show. Insert the bent stem through the eye and then bend the stem around the eye. Repeat the procedure with the second leaf, leaving the stem a tad longer than the first leaf. Use the 18-gauge half round to wrap them tightly together.
Pro Tip: Tip: If your leaves feel a bit loose, don't panic! When you "sew" in your beaded flower it will all firm up nicely.
