Cover Button Felt Flower

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogHello again, it’s Brynde from The Ribbon Retreat. Today I’ll be showing you how to make some fun and easy Felt Flowers.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogThe supplies I used are listed below.
Felt Sheets
Fabric Scraps (All you need is about a 2″ square per flower)
Cover Button Kit (I used the 7/8″ size)
Glue Gun
Alligator Clips (optional)

I used Felt Sheets from Michaels for this project. For a little smaller flower, you could use The Ribbon Retreat’s
1 3/4″ Felt Circles.

Ok, lets get started!

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat Blog1. First I cut my felt into squares getting ready to cut circles out.
2. I used my die cut machine to cut out (6) 2″ circles and (1) 1 1/2″ circle. If you don’t have a die cut machine, trace a circular item and cut out with scissors. I started out making mine this way. 🙂

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat Blog1. Fold your felt circle in half.
2. Put a dab of glue on the right third of the felt and bend it upwards making an “ice cream cone” shape.
3. Now flip your felt piece over and do the same to the left third.
4. The finished piece should look like an “S”.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogI like to use alligator clips to hold my “S” pieces in place while the glue dries.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogTake your smaller 1 1/2″ circle and run glue over the entire surface. Then start laying your “S” pieces down in a circle.
Just eyeball the center point.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogOnce the pieces are all on, I like to fill in the center hole with a little more hot glue to make it even more secure.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogWhen the cover button is finished, cover the back with a good amount of glue and secure to the center of your felt flower.

Cover Button Felt Flowers - The Ribbon Retreat BlogOnce all the glue is dry, fluff your “S” petals, and you have just made one super cute little felt flower! Finish your flower off with a hair clip or brooch pin.

The color combos you can create are endless. It’s a great way to use up your favorite fabric scraps! Have fun creating!

      Hi Lama! Thank you for your question. I believe Bryndee got her die cut machine from Stampin’ Up. It is a scrapbook company that sales paper, this die cut machine and a lot of other fun products for scrapbooking. You can find this die cut machine by clicking HERE. Thank you Lama and have a great day! Michelle 🙂
