flower tutorial

I found this quick little tutorial while blog surfing, and thought I would share. Credit belongs to Elania.

Here is how to:

First cut a fabric scrap about 5×5 inches. Fold it in half to form a triangle and do two more folds like that!!

Then from the end with the openings cut a petal like shape and when you will open it you will have something like this:

Turn it over and place a large brad in the center of it. Wrap the fabric up and secure with a rubber band.

Cut the center of another paper flower or a paper circle or whatever you can imagine and wrap it around the fabric brad to creat a second layer.

And then decorate the top of it by adding smaller flowers, or bling or stickers!!


Here is a layout I have made with a fabric flower in green, decorated with a felt flower, a chipboard button and some bling!!
