Here is a fantastic tutorial for making a circle flower embellishment. The embellishment was featured last month on a layout.  If you missed the layout check it out here.

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Paper:



S4-114 Circles Large

Other Materials Used:

303405 Sofia Vintage Buttons


Step One:

Choose an assortment of fabrics. Here I have some light brown polyester
fabrics as well as some tulle and a little black Bazzill cardstock. If I
were making this into a brooch, I would leave the Bazzill out.

Step Two:

Arrange a variety of dies from the Large Circle Nestabilities set onto the
plate, and cut out some circles from each of the fabrics with the Grand

Step Three:

Here are the cut circles. Separate the polyester fabrics from the tulle and
Bazzill. The next step is just for the polyester fabrics.

Step Four:

Using a heat gun in a well-ventilated area, heat the polyester fabric
circles. The edges will melt slightly and curl up.

Step Five:

Arrange the circles in a pile, alternating colours, fabrics and cardstock.
(The Bazzill circles add stability, and stop some of the larger circles from
curling up and over the smaller ones). The final thing is to stitch one of
the gorgeous Sophia vintage buttons into the very centre of the circles to
keep them all together.
