The flower embelishment is made with some fabric scraps that I had from dresses made for my daughter when she was little.
- Starting with rough circles cut from the fabric a little larger than what you want the end product to be.
- Use a small dowel or pencil, something that will not melt, to hold the centre of the cirle down, and quickly "hit" it with heat from an embossing gun. Play a little with it, each type of fabric can handle a different amount of heat. It's really cool to see out the fabric shrinks up and puckers...
- Then simply stack a bunch together and sew a button on top. I used a little piece of cardstock on the back to sew through so that I had something to glue down to the card.
Here's a picture of a pile of "shrunk" circles. Don't they look just like a bunch of flower petals?
