The secret to creating felt flowers quickly? Die cut your felt! If you have a Sizzix die cut machine -grab our favorite felt flower die here (we have lots of others too!). But no worries if you don't -we offer precut shapes too! The Flower Bouquet Felt-fetti is one of Benzie's favorites -so many flower shapes come in just one bag!
We will focus on creating the rose and the daisy -but use the techniques you learn to mix and match to make a variety of blooms! All the shapes and flowers shown here can be purchased in the Flower Bouquet Felt-fetti. We used a variety of colors from Benzie's French Fleur Felt Palette.
Every flower in this bouquet has a center. The center can just be a felt ball (we like using small sized poms!) -or use the felt rectangle as shown above. When you fold the rectangle in half the precut notches make pretty pistols or head of the flower. Change the look by snipping the pistols in half or wrap it around a pom (that's what we did to make our rose!). Another fun perk of the flower shapes is that they are designed with a place to hold on to the felt -it's the little circle you see next to the shape! Holding onto this piece will help you to get your rolling technique just right!
For the daisy you will need one flower center and two daisy petal die cuts. Once the flower center is rolled -wrap the daisy around the center securing with glue. Wrap the second daisy shape around the base and you're done! We also like to wrap the daisy die cut around itself to make foliage too!
The rose uses a center wrapped around a small size pom -see how we snipped the ends first! You can also leave them folded for a completely different look! Grab the 4 different petal shapes as shown in the photo. We first use the two circle shaped petals and wrapped them around the flower center -then glued the petals opposite of each other to fill it out!
