Morning. Floral embellishments make beautiful adornments for scrapbooking, card making, mixed media pieces and all manner of other projects that you might be creating. They come in such an array of colours, styles and sizes made from a variety of materials.
I will be sharing some of them with you in my Floral Embellishment series over the coming days and weeks. If there is anything you are particularly interested in seeing, do leave your comments below.
Today I am sharing Fabric Rosettes along with my video link for Satin Ribbon Roses.
For the floral series, I have hand dyed some calico fabric. All of the flowers I am sharing can be made with any fabric such as lace or for a more luxurious card, even silk. The fabric you choose will change the look and texture you achieve, allowing you to get just the right style for your project, so just experiment.
The Fabric Rosette: This is a fairly structured Rosette flower, but would look very different made with other fabrics, or even frayed, lace looks amazing and delicate. They are very relaxing to make, do experiment with other fabrics once you get the hang of it. It uses very little fabric.
For this you will need:
- Approximately 15 – 20 2” Circles of your fabric for each bloom
- A 2” Circle of either fabric or card for your base
- Glue Gun
- Chosen centre embellishment or 2-3 extra petals.
Step 1: Cut your circles. Top Tip: If you don’t have a machine/die that can cut multiples, then use a card circle to act as your guide, then cut with scissors. You can easily do 5 or 6 at a time depending on your scissors.
