Flower Tutorial


It's spring time and we are all working on spring and summer time projects we all use flowers so this will be my second flower tutorial these flowers are a lot of fun!
The first thing you will need is a backing and you will need 2 of them roughly  the same size. I used a 1 inch punch but you can cut your own if you don't have one then. I cut about 6-12in strip (I can make 2 with the 12in strip) you will need you hot glue gun or you could use Mighty Mendit but hot glue drys faster. Ok put some glue all over the circle then you will want to  pleat  the fabric around the circle.

Then trim around it to get your desired look
then I used Tulle I hot glued the back and placed strips in a circle around the back and then glued the second backing on this is so you have something flat to glue the flower on to your project later :) then you trim around the Tulle so the Tulle shows up behind the first flower piece until you get your desired look :)

Then pick out your matching lace this should be smaller the the fabric that you used you will then glue plead it around the center of the flower 

You should come up with something like this I'm going to spray it with a glimmer mist I made or you could leave it as is :)

 Then pick out your center this can be anything you want buttons, charms, beads, any thing! I'm using a home made bead center I made.

At the end you have a beautiful looking flower!! You can embellish it with leaves, charms feathers and more ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and if you need help just leave me a comment and I will get back with you asap.
