At Last.....Flower Tut for You!

Hi Friends! Well I did have this all drafted and then a few things took me away from blogging for a minute so I decided to start all over. New month, fresh post, right?

So without anymore chatter here's the Felt Flower Tutorial I promised (albeit late... :( sorry)

This is the ATC I shared in a previous post showcasing a tiny version of the flower we're going to make:

Let's get started!

Step One: Cut a piece of felt 9" long by 1.5" wide. Run a line of adhesive along one edge and fold the other edge over to meet it. Secure the edges together making sure not to squish the loop formed too much.

Step Two: Cut fringe into the loop edge of the folded felt. In this picture I cut the yellow piece in half so you can see it's the same process no matter what length of felt you're using.

Step Three: Begin rolling the fringed felt. Start from one end and roll until you reach the other end. Secure the end with adhesive.

Step Four: Fluff up the flower loops by using a chop stick or other tool. Adhere to your project for a fun custom made flower.

Easy enough, right? I'd love to see if you do anything with these flowers so be sure to leave me a link if you do.

I'll be back again soon with some more projects from SNR to share. In the meantime if you're looking for something fun to do head on over to My Sketch World. There's an ABC crop going on right now and you won't want to miss all the fun in store this month!

Hope you have a fabulous day!


Thanks for sweet words - they mean so much to me!!
