Update -Benzie is now blogging over at Benzie Design - don't miss any of our new tutorials or news!
What a better time to make a dozen (or more!) roses for ones you love the most! These flowers are made easy with the use of WRMK Rose die and wool felt by Benzie.
Supplies you will need:
Wool blend felt from Benzie -we use the colors from Carnation Collection
Rose die from WRMK
Leaf die from WRMK
Hot glue gun
First, go crazy die cutting flowers! If you've never die cut before we suggest reading more on using die cut machines over at this blog post. This flower die comes with a white 'ejection foam' -this is helpful when cutting paper -but not so much felt. We suggest removing the white foam to make it easier to cut the felt.
Take the end of the felt spiral and glue around the top of the florist wire. Continue wrapping around the base until you get the desired flower look -secure with glue. I wrapped a green leaf around the base to finish off the flower.
Make a couple dozen more! I love how Coral, Peach and Thistle look here -and then in a bouquet!
