I made these flowers using fabric-covered buttons purchased from J. Caroline Creative and Prima Paper Flowers and felt flowers from Making Memories. These are simple and affordable to make and really have a lot of impact in my projects. I use them on my handmade cards, as push pins for my cork board (with a tack added of course), and as adornments for lots of my sewing projects. I like to find ways to combine my fabric stash with some of my scrapbooking embellies. It's fun and I get to play with items from both hobbies at the same time!

vintageinspiration writes: Very cute idea. I make fabric buttons and am curious - what size are the buttons? Were these metal shank buttons? Did you snip off the shank? What glue did you use? I'll have to look into this type of craft for my buttons, too. Thank you. www.vintageinspiration.etsy.com

LollyChops writes: Hi 4RS! I do not have to stiffen the felt. I use all kinds of felt (seriously). I have found that pretty much any felt will work (you do need to use felt glue though) or nothing will stick to it.

Yes I do have a blog..
You can find it here: http://www.lollychops.com.

Thanks for looking!
