Have you seen our new Base and Bling Jewelry line? There are lots of ways to make the fabric flowers (with fabric that matches our paper lines!) but below I have done a tutorial on making a fabric flower out of 4 circles.
I started with the following items: The clip base, our Chantilly textiles, Base and Bling adhesive dots and strips, Base and Bling pink jewels.
For this project, I started with 3 sizes of circles: 3 inch (pink), 2 inch (yellow) and one inch (green). 4 circles of each. I have tried multiple different ways to cut the circles. Some suggested Wonder Under from the fabric store and then cut with the cricut. That did not work for me. I ended up having to cut a square a little larger than the size circle I wanted and then hand cut the circle.
Starting with the pink circles, I took one, folded in half and used the double sided adhesive strips.
Then, another piece of adhesive strip and fold in half again
I repeated these steps with the remaining three circles. I ended up with 4 “petals” which when placed together makes a circle.
I repeated this process with the yellow and green circles.
I then ended up with my base, and the 3 flowers. I placed an adhesive dot on the clip base (the part that is pink, in this picture I have not taken off the covering over the adhesive)
I then placed the pieces of the pink flower on the base. I lined up the 4 corners so they would meet in the middle.
Here is the back. I then trimmed the petals so no petals were longer than the rest.
I repeated the process with the yellow and green petals onto an adhesive dot. I was then able to trim those as well before layering on the clip on top of the pink flower
After putting the green flower on, I used some Base and Bling to add to it.
Here is the finished clip
Over the weekend I will do a video tutorial for a different type of fabric flower and making a headband. Come back this weekend! If you try this out, please post a comment and let me know how it went!
