First cut your felt into a strip. The wider the strip the larger the flower. The longer the strip the "fuller" the flower!
Hand stitch the felt along one side.
When done....just pull and the flower will appear!
Now just sew the two ends together on the wrong side of the flower and that's it! You can leave them single and add a button or you could stack them and add a fun center to your flower!

and I still have lots left.
First, in this layout, I used the felt to make flowers. All these are is I cut the felt into a spiral, like you have seen so many of the paper flowers. Starting from the outside of the spiral, I started to "roll". I would add a fold here and there, especially in the middle. The inside of the spiral is a circle, and I used that to glue the whole business together. If this is as clear as mud, I would be glad to take more pictures, just let me know.
Here is a link to the PAPER tutorial I first used when making spiral flowers.
I just hand cut the leaves and hand-stitched them.
This one... in addition to hand stitching, I also wanted to use the illustration of the papers theme... these October Afternoon papers are so cute, rarely do I care if the "theme" matches my layout! Having them work together is a rarity! :)
And 'tis the season for back to school! This is a older picture, but one that was waiting patiently to be scrapped! Do I used pink for boys! YES I DO! :) I just don't care! Try it, it isn't as gender specific as you would think, with the right papers and embellishment, right? :)
We are VERY close to selling out... actually, we were out, and decided to make more!
