Flower power

At Leadership, Shelli showed us some awesome flowers to make with fabric and paper.
This flower is made with the large flower punch (2) and one 1 1/4" and one 1 3/8" circles. Mist the punched pieces with water lightly and scrunch up. Smooth back out and ink the edges to give it a vintage look. Hold the pieces together with a brad. I covered the brad with a felt piece from the sweet pea felt pieces.

This flower is made using the Circle 2 die and the big shot. I cut two of each size circle. Then, using pearl floss, I stitched a big X in the centered and gathered it together, I sew all the layers at the back into a knot. Add another sweet pea felt piece in the center.

This flower is made with the big shot and the XL Flower Folds die. There is a link to a tutorial on Patty Bennett's blog. They are tons of fun to make!!
