Felt and Button Flower Card or Bouquet

By:

0 Comments

Use buttons and felt to create colorful flowers for Mother's Day. Use your button flowers create a homemade card or a whole bouquet for Mom. Kids can help create these felt flowers.

Felt Flower Card

Materials

  • Felt
  • Buttons
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Small scissors
  • Diagram

 

Instructions:

  1. Draw a flower shape on to a piece of felt or choose a shape from this template (pdf) and trace around it. I find a biro (ballpoint) works best on felt. If you want leaves, trace them from the template as well.
     
  2. Trim the flower just inside the pen mark. Make two tiny slits in the centre of the flower with small scissors.
     
  3. Take a pipe cleaner and bend one end about 5cm from the end into the shape of a hair pin with one long end.
     
  4. Thread the pipe cleaner ends through two of the holes in a button then through the two slits in the flower. Twist the short end of the pipe cleaner under the head of the flower to secure it. If you are adding leaves, put glue on the stem and wrap it around the pipe cleaner near the flower at the top.

Felt Flower Bouquet

For the card:

  1. You'll need some card stock, decorative paper new or recycled, glue stick and craft knife.
     
  2. Glue a piece of patterned paper to a card cut two horizontal slits in the centre of the card about 5cm apart then thread the stem of the flower through the card (I did the cutting of the slits for the children using a craft knife.)
     
  3. Note: Use multiple buttons for centres or stack multiple felt flowers. Also, be creative with the paper for the background - try the written side of an old postcard, newspaper, a page from an old book, wallpaper, gift wrap, etc.
