April Showers.....

Bring May Flowers!!!
YEAH!!  Can you believe that May is RIGHT around the corner??
The flowers here in Michigan are starting to bloom, and as they should with the WEEKS of rain we've been getting!  I can't wait until the sun begins shining on a regular basis and I can get makin my Sun Tea is on the deck!  :)
Well, today with the inspiration of all the flowers and all things SPRING and WONDERFUL, I wanted to show you how to make these super cute little Felt Flowers I've been creating and using on my cards and other projects!

Ready for a flower garden of your own?
I don't know about you, but sometimes I just can't justify spending $$ on embellishments I can easily make for MUCH less (and they're much CUTER too I might add!) 
That's where these flowers came from.

You'll need:
  • A piece of felt (or multiple pieces in different colors)
  • A circle/blossom or flower shape nestie (if you don't have nesties, you can use scissors, or other types of diecutting shapes)
  • Bling/Button (floss) or Brads (I used my iRock on the Pink one and a Button on the Orange one)
  • Fabric/Craft Glue
  • Crop-a-dile or hole punch
So, cut several layers in your felt.  Here I used my blossom nesties and cut three layers, each a different size.


 Taking your Glue, I put a dab of glue in the center of each layer, except for the very top layer, sticking each piece together as you go.

Add your bling to the center of your flower - 

and VOILA - Super CUTE, Instant Flower!

If you're using a Brad to connect layers together, PUNCH a hole in the center of your flowers.  Attach brad to flower.  For Buttons - add your button to the center and get our a needle and thread and sew button through all layers of the flower.

 A flower similiar to the orange one was used on my Hippie Chick Card the beginning of the month.
And here's the final product on a card -
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "Dottie" Hippie
Paper - DCWV Paper Stack, Bazzill & Kraft
Coloring - Copics
Tools - Nesties, Cuttlebug, Needle & Floss
Extra STUFF - Button, Doodling & Dimensionals

These are super quick to make and super fun too!  I hope you enjoy making yourself a little Felt Flower Garden!
Happy Spring!
