.:Tutorial Tuesday - Pinched Fabric Flowers:.

Go here for the Flirty Apron review and giveaway.

These fabric flowers are ridiculously easy to make, and I just love the way they look!

What you need:

hot glue/gun
circles to trace (I used plastic cups)

You'll want to start out by tracing various sizes of circles, to layer one on top of the other.

Next, put a dot of hot glue in the center of the flower...

and pinch it. (Let the glue cool a bit - I've burned myself many a time making these!)

You can kind of play with the lay of them, but they are really unique!

After you've done however many layers you're planning on, hot glue the layers on top of each other.

Add your bling. (Apparently I spaced it on taking a picture of that step!)

And glue it on to a clip.

Cute, right?

They are also super cute on the fabric/elastic headbands. You can see on some of them that I added some layers of tulle between the fabric.

I link to these parties!
