Spice Cake Fabric Flower

I know!  I've already posted about fabric today.  But I kept on crafting.  So I might as well post what I did.....since Stampin' Up!'s Fabric Frenzy is in full swing (Full details here) .  It's only available though this week and there are limited supplies.  It's to your best interest to have some ideas and think about it early while picking is good. There is no way to predict if they will run out.

TADA!  Another fabric flower.  Nothing unusual about that.  I showed a small one on a card in my last post (CHECK IT OUT HERE)   They are everywhere on pinterest.  I wanted to show you how easy it is to make one with the Stamping / Crafting supplies you may already have.


You can use any fabric.  But I chose the 1/2 price Spice Cake Fabric 124066 only $4.98 this week!




I pulled out my Fun Flowers Bigz L Die  121812 to cut out some great flowers.
Fun Flowers Bigz L Die - by Stampin' Up!
Then I placed a piece of each color fabric on the die and ran it through the big shot.


It cuts out these flowers so easily!  Even with 3 layer...I'm sure I could do more at once.


I stacked up all the layers and punched through them with a Paper Piercing Tool 126189


Then it was easy to add one of Stampin' Up!'s Antique Brads 117273 right in the center.
I did spritz the flower with a little spray starch and then started to SCRUNCH it up to add some fullness and height to the flower.  But that is it!

You can add a pin to the back and use it as a pin.  Sew it to a clip for your hair or your purse.  Tack it to a head band for a fun addition.

I decided to use a little more fabric and tie up a box.  Fabric is great for ribbon.  You just clip the width you want and then rriiiip!  You have a strip.  With our 27" x 18" extra wide fat quarters..you have plenty of length.

I tied up one of our Kraft Gift Boxes 124106 (3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 2 1/2")  They are a great bargain.  
Just $2.95 for 4 boxes.  I always keep them on hand.  
 

Then of course I'll use my Spice Cake Fabric Flower for a FUN bow!


Now wouldn't a gift card wrapped like this, be even MORE  fun??

Make it a CREATIVE day!
