A Felt Flower Tutorial

A few weeks back I shared a tutorial with Kelsey from Tattered and Inked and her readers.
Today I'm sharing it for all of you!

This is one of my favorite quick and easy felt flowers and a go to for my Fairly Fabulous Flower frames.
Start with your favorite color felt. Felt by the yard or the 8 1/2 x 11 inch craft sheets will work.
Cut yourself a strip. (I cut an 8 1/2 inch piece approx 1 inch wide for my frames)
Fold it in half and hot glue the ends together.
Now take your felt loop and begin making cuts on the unglued side to 'fringe' your strip.
When the entire piece is cut,
take a small dab of glue on one end of your glued side (check out the photo- it will make more sense)
Then begin rolling the loop back on itself.
 See your flower starting to form?
Hot glue the bottom of your flower as you go until the entire strip is rolled.
Glue the end down to complete the flower.
I mix my felt Tabbies with rosettes to create my Rainbow frames!
What will you put your felt Tabbies on?

Super cute!! Love them. Look similar to ones I've made with fabric. I love your frames too. Need to get Brookelyn one for her room.
