Felt Gardenia

I love making my own embellishments! When I started scrappin' several years back you had to buy everything! And that got REALLY expensive! A few months ago I tried my hand at making flower embellies with tissue paper and spellbinders. I wasn't happy with the look. Last night, I decided to try cutting a square of felt with my Spellbinder Blossoms Three. I folded each section in quarters and then stitched them together with a blanket stitch. I adhered the 4 quarters on a paper punched circle. I then cut 4 more smaller blossoms and carefully stitched them on top. For the final touch, I popped on a large adhesive pearl I picked up at Michaels. It kinda looks like a gardenia! And it is so scrunchy! I think it will fit in a fat envelope nicely!

And here it is...



Thanks so much for reading and maybe I can get some time to film a tutorial if you like it! Blessings...
