Handmade Flower Tutorial

Happy New Year to all my lovely blog friends!
Wishing everyone a wonderful 2011

Not so long ago, when I made this card

and this layout

I was asked if I could share a tutorial on these handmade flowers
First of all, I'll have to tell you that I am not the one that came up with the original idea of these flowers, so I tried to search for the tutorial online, it was long time ago and I couldn't remember whom I learn it from, so I decided to take some step by step photos to show you how I get these done 

This is the kind of fabric I used

I used my sizziz machine and die cut to make 4 circles in different sizes



You can keep it the way it is, or spray it with glimmer mist


 I am using Tattered Angels Concord from their "chalkboard collection" 
You can get them at The Pixie Shop


Use the tea light or any candle jar you have, bring the rim of the fabric close to it to get the edges curl up a little





Hot glued the layers....


top with a pearl, or brad...


Tada.........
Here's the handmade flower.......


Hope you enjoy my very first tutorial! : )

Oh I just LOVE these flowers! I wish I knew what kind of material that was. My luck I'll use the wrong material and start a fire in my craft room! THAT would be tragic!
