Fringe Flower Gift Idea

I can hardly believe that Christmas is on our heels!  Where did the time go!  I've been thinking about Christmas gifts and what I am going to give this year.   The project I am going to share today was created for the Lil' Inker Fall Release but I haven't shared it yet.  I think that these would make great gifts!


I used the Lil' Inker Designs Fringe Flower die and rolled it with pink felt.  I stitched a little bit of yellow onto the end of the pink felt to make a yellow center when the flower was rolled.  I used the Original Pinwheel die to make the leaves and hot glued two of them onto the backside of the flower.  Then, I attached the flower to a large paperclip.


 If you make these for gifts, you could custom make the colors to the person's personality.  You can mix colors too as I will show you a little later.  If you are giving a gift or a gift certificate to a book store, this would compliment that nicely.  Or, if you wanted, you could use this to decorate the outside of your package too.


How about one more sample?


I LOVE mixing the two colors of felt together to make a flower that is full of color! I have a tutorial on how this works below. 


Here's what the backside of the flower looks like after I attached it to the paperclip:


I cut a circle with felt and then hot glued it onto the back of the paperclip.  This makes it look finished and hides all the pieces.


I hope you enjoyed this project and tutorial!  Thanks for stopping by!
