Nesting Blossoms Felt Flower Tutorial

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  It's bright and early here...or should I say dark and early?  I'm all dressed and ready for my first day on the job.

Today's tutorial is a how to on the felt flowers I created for Lifestyle Crafts nesting release.  They got requests for a "how to"...and the rest is history.

I used the Nesting Blossoms from the Lifestyle Crafts nesting release to create these fun flowers.

While these felt flowers may look difficult, they are actually rather easy.  I give you a couple of options for assembly, but I used a stapler.  I know...a stapler.  But that should illustrate to you exactly how easy these are!  If you can use a stapler, you can make these flowers.

In the video, I didn't attach anything to the back of my flower.  The possibilities, however, are endless.  You can use these as a magnet, hair clips, decor for boxes, gift bags...you get it.

I hope you enjoy this video....and I hope you have a fabulous day!  I would love your prayers for a good day for me as well!

****Note-I purchased my felt from Paper Trey Ink.

  4. Love these! I want to make some of these as magnets and with iTop photo buttons of my kids to give to their grandmas. I've tried die cutting wight the "cheap" felt and didn't like the results.
