I had this hessian gift bag I thought looked a little plain. It was sturdy enough to hold the weight of the new heart bezel as a tag. I used a couple of handmade rolled roses to decorate the heart. Here is a step-by-step showing how I made them.

Products Used:


MD1-005 Hearts One dies
MB1-005S Hearts One bezel
S4-114 Circles Large
S5-084 Girlie Grunge Labels

Other Materials Used:

Calico fabric
Maya Road wooden spool, pearl headed pin
Websters Pages cameo pin Bo Bunny C'est la Vie paper

Step 1 
Cut a circle approximately the size of the required rose. The colour of the cardstock is not important as it will be entirely covered up. You'll also need a half inch strip of calico that's about 60-70 cm long. I tore this off a larger piece, hence the rough frayed edges.

Step 2 
Staple one end of the fabric strip to the centre of the circle.

Step 3 
Twist the fabric strip - loosely for a shabby flower and tightly for a neater look.

Step 4 
Wind the twisted fabric around the centre. Apply some adhesive (I have used PVA here) around the cardstock circle to secure the twisted fabric as you go.

Step 5 
There may be some cardstock showing when you reach the end of the fabric. Simply trim this away with scissors.
