My version of K&Co's Handmade Flowers


Okay... I'm totally addicted to making these flowers guys! I bought a pack of these K&Co flowers from Michael's and thought to myself, "I could totally make these!!!" So off to buy fabric and trim I went! I'm so excited because I could make a ton of these to my own taste (mine are quite different from K&Co's.) And they are so easy and fun to make!!

I used satin fabric, cut into circles using my Circles #2 die by Sizzix. I burned the edges of the circle with a lighter. The feathers are from Michael's & Joanns (my Michaels doesn't carry the Pheasant feathers, so I had to get them at Joann's.) Add some lace and/or toole and a rope of pearls or sequence and finish it off by adding pearls in the center of the flower... use a hot glue gun to pull it all together and voila! Instant flowers!!

I have a video posted on how I created my version of these flowers HERE.

Enjoy!

hugs,
Arlene
