Easy Fabric Flower

Hi everyone! I found this easy little flower on a forum (thank you Karen Wilson) and thought I would share it with you!

What you need:
-hot glue gun
-a circle of cardstock or paper
-a pretty centre for you flower

Cut a strip about 1 inch wide and 20 inches long of fabric doesn't matter if it's not too straight.  Cut a 2 and a half inch circle from cardstock(this will be what you adhere your fabric to). You can cut the circle from a piece of paper that matches the fabric just in case some shows through the fabric.

Place some hot glue in the middle of the circle or a glue dot. Put the end of the fabric there to begin the flower. Next, slightly twist the fabric loosely and begin wrapping it around the centre part you glued down. You will want to put little bits of hot glue down to stick the fabric to the circle with. You will need to work quickly as hot glue dries really fast. Keep going until you run out of fabric.

Once you are done, if you have any little bits of fabric left, just put a little hot glue on the back of the circle to fasten it down.

Then put your centre pieces on and you are done!

The two flowers that I made!
