April Blog Hop

This month we are sharing anything but a card...
You should have arrived here from:The Bluegrass Stamper
http://bluegrassstamperstudio.blogspot.com/
I chose to share with you a flower. Not just any flower but a flower I made from fabric circles I cut with the Big Shot and circles #2 die. It is the cheapest material you can find. Get one that ravels easily.
 Here are the circles I started with. You can double up on the number of circles you use to make the flower as full as you want it. I placed my circles on top of each other and punched a center hole with my crop-a-dile. Next I placed a brad in the center. This holds the layers together. If you use a Rhinestone brad be careful not to melt the center. I held my layers down with the point of my scissors. Then I used my heat gun to melt the flower layers until they curled like I wanted them to. You have to have a little patience as it can sometimes be a slow melt or it can be very fast if you use a thinner material.
 I cut out a felt circle to glue on the back and then glued on a hair clip


I hope you enjoyed seeing my share today.
