Make your own craft flowers!

 

My mind was really speechless today, I did not have a clue what should I post on my blogs until later tonight. After several hours of thinking of new craft ideas to make, I finally came up with something using felt paper. I know I'm not the only one that came up with this idea, I've seen a lot of people making different kinds of stuff using felt paper but this one is completely my original idea, I'm not copying anybody else's creation! Below is the step by step how I made these cute flowers.

 ♥♥♥ First, I took a piece of cardboard and drew a flower design on it, two different sizes, I cut it out and used it as a template to trace onto the felt paper...

♥♥♥I then cut out the flowers that I have traced onto the felt paper, I decided to cut out three big ones and one small one so I can layer them together, it's just a personal preference, I think they look much prettier when they are layered...

♥♥♥ I wanted my flower to have leaves too, so I drew a basic leaf shape onto green felt paper, first I folded the felt paper, the reason I did that, so you don't have to cut out the leaves twice, you can save some time doing this, and then it is much easier to sew it to the flower when they're connected like in the picture shown below...

♥♥♥ Now, it's assembly time! So what I did is, I put a piece of a button on top of my layered flowers and put the leaves on the bottom so I can sew them all at one time...

♥♥♥ After I've sewn them together, I decided to put some clear rhinestones on the petals and the leaves so the flowers would look like it has mist or water drops on them...

♥♥♥As you will notice in the picture that the two flowers have different settings on the leaves, the pink flower's leaves is exactly the same as the purple, but what I did is twisted the leaves...see the picture below...

♥♥♥ And you're done! How easy was that? I hope my step by step is understandable and please if you have any questions, please feel free to comment! I hope you all enjoy this! ♥♥♥
