May Papertrey Ink- Blog hop using felt


Here is my creation for the Papertrey Ink May Blog hop, using felt. I had placed an order for my own "goodies" to use in the hop, but sadly I am still waiting. So I had a piece of Raspberry fizz cardstock and a scrap piece of raspberry mix dp that already had an oval cut out of it. I went into my felt stash and found a piece that matched the papers and cut a several small squares and rounded the corners of the squares (you could also use a circle) and then from the outside edge I cut a spiral into the felt until I reached the center. I started rolling the felt from the outside to the inside. I wound the first 3-4 layers very tightly to form the tight center and then I started to roll edges over as I went around the center (to form the petals). This was my first time using felt to form roses, but I am pretty happy with them.


Paper: Raspberry fizz cardstock, Raspberry mix dp, Papertrey Ink, white cardstock base, The Paper Studio

Stamps: Petals from Scratch, Fiskars

Ink: old olive, Stampin Up!

Tools: border punch, Fiskars

Embellishments: felt (handmade) roses, white grosgrain ribbon, Stampin Up!

Technique: flocking on leaves and stems, Martha Stewart flocking powder


Please let me know what you think. Hopefully my order arrives soon, so that I will have "goodies" to use for next months hop. Enjoy your evening everyone!

Here is a close up view of the felt roses and the flocked stems and leaves.
