Rolled Flowers

 Here is the tutorial that I used to make mine.            This is such a fun project and I have been wanting to try it.  Now that I see how simple it is, I'm afraid I wont be able to stop myself.    
Note:  Sorry about the pictures, I could not find my camera so I used my cell.

Here is the finished flower.  Hopefully the directions I give you plus the video will get you on your way to making your own rolled flowers.  

This is an old t-shirt that doesn't fit Sam anymore, so I simply cut off the bottom hem.  The wider and longer you cut the material the bigger your flower.

This is kinds of a strange center to use, but it is all I had., felt is what is recommended but I had no felt so I improvised.  You can use anything.  Paper, felt, just something to give you a base.

I knotted the end and glued it to the center

I rolled until I had the size I wanted and snipped off the excess and glued the end under to hide the end. I used glossy accents to glue as I went along.  Then let it sit for about 10 minutes to dry completely.

I added a few embellishment and it's ready for a pin, or whatever I want to use it for.

Happy Monday!
