Homemade flowers

I made some flowers yesterday. The three are felt and buttons. I found out I can use felt with my cuttlebug and big shot dies. I only had a couple of colors of felt but thought they made cute flowers. The big one I made with rose petals, not sure of the material, but almost feels like paper, but its fabric. I got the ideas for these from KSUE on youtube. The petal flower are rolled at the end and glued to a circle, I added more to the back to fill it out, then added tulle, bead spray, I put a felt flower to cover the middle really well and added a button. Its too big for a card, but thinking about adding this to a frame or candle. Not sure yet. If you want to see a picture tutorial of how I made this let me know I will do one.

Christi... Your handmade flowers are so cute! Love them! Thank you so much for the very kind comments you left on my blog regarding the metallic steam punk hot air balloon. Isn't it crazy how you can transform a Styrofoam ball into a hot air balloon? I hope you will try it. It was fun and really not that hard. Thank you again so much for your comments! They are greatly appreciated. Hugs, Candy
