Handmade Glittery Felt Flowers

I love making these… they are a tad footery to do but love the end result πŸ™‚

First of all take some felt and cut 8 petal shapes, dip the edges in glossy accents and then re-dip into a small container with some fine glitter .. or some german glass glitter and set aside to dry completely… I made these yesterday and allowed them to dry overnight.

Then you need to sew them all together into a flower shape (just imagine the flower below has glitter around the edges πŸ˜‰ Β )

Next you need to create the stamen for the centre with some fine wire and seed beads, its Β too complicated to explain the process, so will do a ustream tutorial on it one day soon πŸ™‚

Then you need to stitch the stamen onto the centre of the felt flower, and also pick a nice glass bead or button and stitch that to the middle too πŸ™‚

Then your done! … I turned mine into a christmas tag…

Christmas Card, Envie and Tag..

Another lovely warm evening crafting my wee heart out in the shed tonight… it is bitter cold and frosty outside too!

I made an envelope first out of sheet music paper, it is machine stitched around the outside edge (the stitching is a bit wonky, but plan to fix it tomorrow night, after some sound advice from the lovely Mitzi and Susan) πŸ™‚

then I made a card using Tim Holtz Festive resist kraft cardstock.. I also used the seasonal distress ink pads to colour the berries and holly. Β  There is a watered down white acrylic wash painted over the kraft paper to give it an old feel πŸ™‚

Oh…. and i covered the berries in glossy accents, to accent them..

Next I made a tag using a No. 8 Inkssentials Tag, distress inks and tested out my new heat gun πŸ˜‰

The little felt flower is the one I made the other night, made from felt and edged in german glass glitter..

If you have any questions just give me a shout and Thanks so much for dropping in πŸ™‚
