Materials:

  • strips of cotton or silk fabric, 2-3 inches wide and at least 12-16 inches long
  • stiffened felt
  • Cuttlebug and Nestabilities dies- optional
  • scissors
  • Jewels (optional)
  • hot glue gun & sticks

Instructions:

  1. Cut some circles (or flower shapes) from your felt. I made a number of 2-4 inch shapes with my Cuttlebug because it’s so fast and easy, and the Nestabilities cut the stiffened felt beautifully. I like the stiff felt because it makes such a nice base for your flowers!
     
  2. Start by gluing your jewel or rhinestone into the center of your felt circle. (I think these ones by Darice are amazing!) Next, trim the end of your fabric strip at an angle.
     
  3. Next, place a dab of hot glue next to the jewel and press the point of the fabric strip into it. Let it cool and set up a bit. When it’s secure, start twisting the strip. Add a dab of glue every quarter inch or so, and press the twisted fabric into the glue.
     
  4. Continue until the felt is completely covered. To secure the ends, just flip the flower over, trim the excess, and glue the ends down on the back.

This is a pretty little flower and doesn't take much fabric to complete, and a good way to use scraps of nicer fabric that otherwise might go to waste. I am going to try making this again using this technique as it looks easier than similar flower patterns. I especially love the gem in the center which gives it some real elegance!
