Make It Monday #285 - Felt Flowers

Hello friends.  Lizzie is up for a tutorial on making felt flowers in this week's Make It Monday challenge.  I have a whole box of different colors of felt that I had bought when I purchased the coin purse dies and guess what?  Haven't made a single coin purse and haven't used even a scrap of the felt!  So no excuses, I needed to make a flower!!  I was actually quite intrigued by the rolled flower Lizzie showed, and made a tag with it.


I started with a piece of 1 1/2" X 12" Winter Wisteria piece of felt, and rolled, and rolled, and rolled!  My flower turned out quite large and I wish I had stopped at about 8".  I still really like the way it looks though, and added a few Simply Chartreuse leaves that I die cut using the leaf die from the Enclosed: Apple set.  I attached the flower to a (Tag Sale #10) couple of tags I cut and stamped with the new Especially You stamp set.  I have some white gift bags and purple tissue paper that this tag will look really nice with!  Quick (well except for trying to find my glue gun!), easy, and FUN...I will definitely be making some more of these!  Thanks Lizzie!!

Still time to play, so check out Lizzie's video and BEAUTIFUL flowers all right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!  :0)

  1. Oooh, this is so sweet Marcia! Love that puffy flower! I haven't seen the video yet but hope to maybe later today. I bought all the stuff to make coin purses too and never made a single one either. Maybe we should challenge each other. ;0)

  3. Marcia, I love your flower tag! The Winter Wisteria and Simply Chartreuse are a match made in heaven. It's so pretty with the stamped flower background and pretty tassel.
