New Challenge + tutorial for felt flowers

The challenge this week at Scrap and Stamp Saturday (you can find the link on the right bar) is simple! We would love to see handmade flowers with at least one stamp used on your layout! Easy enough right we all love flowers, right?

I've made a tutorial for felt flowers. Feel free to use it. If you make any flowers and you use it on your layout, could you leave a comment with your blog? I would love to see your creations.

What you need?
- 3 colours felt
- scissors
- glue or other adhesive
- button


How does it work?
Draw 1 large petal and 1 smaller petal on paper. You can choose what size you want.









Cut out the templates and draw the petals on the felt. You will need 6 small petals and 12 large ones.

· 6 small ones in 1 colour
· 6 large ones in another colour
· 6 large ones in the third colour





Form each set of 6 petals into an overlapping circle. Glue each petal to the adjacent petal.





When you finish them all, you will have 3 flower layers




Stick the 3 layers on each other and use adhesive on top to stick the button.



Finished!!!

I used the sketch of Creative Scrappers for this layout!! You surely have to go over there to see the lovely sketches they have. http://creativescrappers.blogspot.com/

Super leuke layout geworden met die bloem! Ik ben alweer veel te lui om al die blaadjes te gaan zitten uitknippen :P Maar misschien moet ik het toch maar eens doen.
