I LOVE felt flowers! Big or small they are so fun are gorgeous for all sorts of projects.
I've had a ton of fun trying out a couple of different methods and styles, I tell you, there are so many beautiful projects.
Paper templates make beautiful hand cut flowers, there are also some great dies to use with a cutting machine. Of course, in the name of craft I had to try both.
The paper version was super simple, check out my Pintrest board for some great templates. I found the best way to attach the tricky little pattern to my felt was by taping it down, then cutting around the pattern.
Start from one end and roll the felt up using a glue gun to secure it all together.
The die I used was the Spiral Flower from Sizzix, super easy to use. These dies are made for a Big Shot machine but will work through a Cuttlebug too.
As with the handcut flower, start rolling and glue as you go.
The great thing about this type of spiral pattern is the versatility of it. I made a couple of variations using contrasting felt balls and a sparkly strip of glitter felt. Gorgeous!
So, what to do with your felt flowers? You're only limited by your imagination! Put them on florist wire and in a vase, use them as flourishes on a quilt or wall hanging, hair accessories or something like this >>
