French beaded apple blossoms free beginner pattern/tutorial

Would you like to get started with making French beaded flowers? This is one of the patterns I developed when I first started making beaded flowers. Apple blossoms! 

My fiancé (now hubby) were taking a walk at the park and I broke off a branch to take home to study. I took pictures of it but could not find it since it’s been so long ago. I was adamant about getting all the various leaf sizes.

This pattern is versatile. You can make one or two branch for a stunning arrangement or you can make many for a show-stopper.
