fun with flowers {a tutorial}....

i had lots of requests on HOW i made the felt flowers i posted on sunday.  i went back searching for the blog that i had first seen them on and for the life of me cannot find it.  they are SUPER SIMPLE, so instead of wasting hours trying to find that exact tutorial, i thought i would just share how EASY they are...

but FIRST i wanted to show you how cute they look on my messanger bag....just three of them placed in the corner and wah-lah...instant transformation!


all you need is 
felt or wool,
a scissors,
glue gun,
& a pin for the back
this piece of wool is approximately a 1 inch wide & 35 inches long...
obviously you can make them BIGGER & smaller and just adjust the width & length accordingly.

cut notches at your desired width.
for some of them i have started out with smaller, thinner cuts in the beginning and then wider as i got to the end.

start rolling and gluing...EASY PEASY!

here is what it will look like....


add a piece to cover the bottom & glue on a pin...

wah...LAH!!  
how EASY & FUN is THAT!

i have also tried some other fabric flowers... i added some of them to a altered clipboard.

so....are ya gonna give it a try?
i hope so...i am actually going to use them on my christmas gifts as well...
instead of a big bow on the package, i am going to include one of these flower pins.

i am off to make MORE...it's a BIG WEEKEND at the local boutique that i am selling stuff in, and i want to have lots of these available.  so...TA.TA. for now!  =)
XOXO,
