It’s been a while since I posted craft projects. It’s not because I haven’t made anything, but because the entire cardmaking blogosphere is on Blogspot and I’m obviously on WP. There are DIY bloggers on WordPress or self-hosted blogs too. One of them, Paige, inspired me to make button art. Unfortunately, my first project turned out so bad that my husband had a hard time making out which shapes I’d made and therefore I didn’t want to ask him to take a picture. I want to make button art again, but not now.
A few weeks ago, the activity staff at my ward introduced me to felt flowers she’d bought at Action. These were readymade, but you can also easily cut them out of felt yourself. Make sure you have three different sizes. Each flower should have a hole in it. You’ll also need a button and some ribbon.
Thread the button through to the middle of the ribbon. Add the flowers, starting small to large. Tie a knot and you’re done. In the picture below, my activity staff tied the flower to a chair./PP>
Last week, I was thinking about making a card but hadn’t brought my supplies and was tired of die-cut images. The activity staff suggested I use a felt flower for my card too. Because we didn’t use the ribbon, she sewed it together for me and then we glued it onto the card. I wonder what it’d look like with the ribbon on. Instead, I glued a ribbon to the card border.
