Scrap Fabric Flowers!

OMG, I just love these – they are so cute and I love making them! I’ve gone a little flower crazy and my daughters (and myself) will be wearing a different coloured flower in their hair everyday for years!

I’m currently selling the Red Gingham versions of these pretty little things – keep an eye out for loads of different versions soon to come!

Adorable Handmade Red Gingham Shabby Chic Style Fabric Flower for Accessorizing or Embellishments

This beautiful, unique and handmade piece is perfect for a variety of accessorizing and embellishing situations.

Each flower incorporates a handsewn fabric disk on the back of the flower for which you can use to make the process of stitching, gluing, fastening, pinning or clipping the flower to your desired accessory easier. This flower looks gorgeous as a hair accessory, either clipped by inserting the top of a kirby grip into the pocket formed by the back disk or looped around a hairband or bobble. My daughter’s hair looks gorgeous in bunches with one of these clipped either side.

Here’s a few more suggestions of how you can use these flowers: For embellishing handbags, scarves, purses, shoes and clothing. As a brooch or choker neckpiece. For a dramatic finish to Scrapbooking and papercraft projects. For gift-wrap toppers. As a beautiful accessory to your own sewing pieces. For home decor such as on scatter cushions or curtain tie-backs. The possibilities are endless!

Each flower measures approx 3″ across and is made from 5 soft cotton fabric petals pulled in with a card re-inforced center button piece. A matching cotton circle disk is handsewn to the back of each piece for fastening purposes.

Sponge clean only. DO NOT immerse in water.

Because we all deserve to wear flowers in our hair!

Crafts for Kids: Crafty Cards

Why not introduce your kids to the art of card craft early with this cheap and alternative way of creating really special and unique cards for your family and friends for birthdays, christmas, weddings etc…

The school year is almost over so today my daughter and I made this Thank You card for her teacher.

What You Need:

  • Gluestick
  • Scissors
  • Coloured Card
  • Coloured Paper
  • Envelope
  • Cut-Outs from Greetings Cards (See below for details)

Optional:

  • Sequins
  • Ribbons
  • Beads
  • Tissue paper
  • Felt Tip Pens
  • Whatever you like!

Every time we have an event that means we get lots of cards in our house when we are finished with them instead of throwing them away or putting them in a sentimental keepsake box and forget about them we cut out pieces from them. Text that reads “Happy Birthday” for example, pictures of butterflies, flowers, boarders etc etc etc (from the inside and the back of the card too!) All these pieces go into a special box and when it’s someones birthday or whatever we can have a good rummage through and decide which pieces to use to make a card ourselves. (We also use these as gift tags on presents – it’s something my Mother and I used to do when I was a child and I still enjoy deciding which part of the card would make the nicest cut out as much as I did then.)

Card craft supplies kind of have the same kind of thing only you have to fork out your hard-earned for these pieces – and although they look much more professional our method is not only free but recycled and when people know your kids have helped make the cards they are generally much more forgiving.

How to Build Your Card:

Firstly measure the envelope that you are using and ensure your folded piece of card is just a little bit smaller than this.

Use a piece of card cut to size and fold in half – we used card that is coloured on one side and white on the inside.

Using a piece of coloured paper, we cut another piece to fold in half that is even smaller than the card itself to add as the insert. (This is where you will write your greeting message.)

Once glued in place we added a message to the inside just like a bought card would have from our card cut outs box.

The front of the card is really up to you, use the pieces of card cut outs (see how we used a piece of pink spotty card as a background and added pieces on top of that). Embellish the card as you like, just make sure it’s not too bulky that it won’t fit into your envelope.
