I've seen many felt type embellishments lately. While I was at the craft store, I picked up some Glimmer Felt Sheets. These are approximately 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of a thicker felt that sparkle ranging from .79 to .99 (cents). I love sparkle as much as transparency!! Anyway, the embellishments I've seen cost much more and for flower ones I thought, I could make my own using my Big Shot. So, while I was on the phone with Tammy today we were discussing it and I tried it out. I told her I would quickly put something together to post for her. (She is a fun friend and fellow TAC Demo.)I think it is a wonderful idea if you have the die's you need to create them.
TIP: Think flowers, hearts, circles, holidays, balloons, ANYTHING.
Big Shot (die cut machine)
Die (Here Sizzix Florals)
Felt (Here glittered)
Adhesive (any, I used Xyron machine)
Instructions: This is as simple as it gets! Place your felt in the desired machine and cut your shapes. Then, simply adhere to your project. I used my Xyron sticker machine. The fun part here is that I can prepare my die cut shapes and save them for later. (For this or any other project)
The photo below is a simply stampedbyanangel card showing the finished felt flowers! How fun is that? I used TAC's "BE" set for Tammy because she is so "quirky" with some Designer Series paper. If you notice the flowers, I finished one with a button and another with a little sequin.
NOTE: After I did mine, my die was a bit fuzzy. For this reason, I don't know about trying it in a cricut. Although, if I try it or anyone does Please post.
Until next time...
