More Flowers!

I recently bought a new Spellbinder die that I am now in love with: Spiral Blossom One. I started by die cutting some red felt.

To make the blossom you simply begin rolling from the small end, and you can see a flower bud start to form immediately.

I actually decided I wanted to try mixing two different shades of red felt in one blossom, so I started over and rolled the two felt pieces together.  When I got to the end I held the felt in place with 2 of my extra long quilting pins.

I applied The Best Glue Ever directly to the bottom of the flower and let it dry.

When it dried I had this lovely felt rose:

I have played with it a lot and it holds together very well, but I wanted to see how well it would work if I used a large glue spot.  I decided that a quarter size spot would be just about perfect, so I traced it on my release paper and filled it with The Best Glue Ever.

When you make a thin layer it dries very quickly.

I turned the felt flower over and pressed it to the glue spot.  It picked it right up and I was able to remove the pins and finish the flower by folding the bottom flaps into place.

I love rolled roses, but these felt ones are a whole other level of pretty.

I also love love love how you do your tutorials. It's so easy to follow (and mimic) what you do!
