Blue Jeans *Donna Salazar*

Hi my scrappy friends!
Its Lisa today sharing a tutorial on how to make felt roses. It really is easy using Donna's "Bitty Blossoms". Felt flowers seem to in lately and buying your own felt makes it not only convenient but also super cheap! Here is my layout using the amazing Family Jeans Paper Collection. This is a photo of my little Roxy and in her blue jeans.

Here is a closer view of the blue felt roses. 

First, take a piece of felt and cut it to fit your diecut machine. 
I bought my felt at Michael's full price for 20 cents! lol

Using the largest of Bitty Blossoms...Run it through the diecut machine a few times. 
If it sticks a bit just cut edges with scissors. You should see the lines. 

The biggest part of making these flowers is applying the glue all the way around before you start rolling them. I use a fast drying glue like Art Glitter-Clear. The roll the edges like you do with paper, I also use a wooden stick in the center and then pull it out when Im done.

Ta Da! Your felt flower is done! 

Another view of the felt flower and layering of a yellow rose using 3 layers. 

Gotta LOVE the chippie letters in this "Family Jeans" collection.

An angled view of the dimensions of the flowers and pop dots throughout.

Hope you enjoyed and start making your own felt flowers too...
I just love when I can save some money to spend it somewhere else. :)
Have a great day!
