Hopefully your April is warmer than mine- and less rainy! April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but I am making a few of my own today-
This isn't really anything new, but a twist for people who can have several thumbs when trying to make rolled flowers from fabric using liquid glue. ;)
I cut a few pieces of card stock to about 1 x 1". Also, cut some fabric strips- any width, I did try to vary them. Cover your square with glue dots- I think I used four of the larger sized ones here- Tie the end of your fabric strip into a knot.
Fold the end of the knot under and adhere to glue dots. Twist and roll. This is SO much easier than using a liquid adhesive imo- and the card stock offers a sturdy back. Keep twisting and rolling and pushing down. (really, this is just a knock off version of a make-your-own-gluber if you don't have one on hand!)
You can always mix it up and try making different flower styles- Here I twisted until it created it's own loop and then adhered, repeat all the way around creating twisted loops.
Here are several different styled flowers- All you have to do is cut around the flower to remove excess card stock. You can sit and make these while watching AI! ;)
here's a close up of them all trimmed and on my card-
And the finished project-I placed all the flowers on the S4-310 Labels Eighteen from Spellbinders™ and cut her C8517-Pink Enchanted Garden Circles fabric also using the same die template. The very-hard-to-see-sentiment is an itty bitty stamp called Be You from Unity Stamp Company. The flowers and larger label panel are from her fabric line sold at Riley Blake.
And, lastly, another quick and simple card using her Big Top Birthday collection. I submitted two to last months Paper Crafts Magazine carnival call, and this was the reject!! :) The sentiment is a sticker also from the same collection.
