I’ve been excited all week about sharing what I’ve been working on with you guys! I was inspired by an amazing flower clip tutorial I found at A Feathered Nest and started making flower clips. I discovered something – I LOVE making them! I mean love love love. ;-) I’ve been trying to decide what I would like to make and sell on Etsy, and I think I’ve found it! It’s so much fun. :-)
What you need:
- Alligator Clips (I bought mine at The Ribbon Carnival – 100 for $10 including shipping. You might search Etsy under “Supplies” as well!)
- Faux Flowers ( $1.49 for two blooms at Michaels)
- Buttons, Crystals, or whatever you want to use for the center of the flower
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks ($2.49 at Michaels!)
Here’s the fun part – mix and match the colors and shapes until you have something you like!
Turn the flower over and start gluing the layers together, starting from the bottom and working your way up. Put the very bottom layer aside – you’re going to glue the alligator clip and that layer on last.
Alternatively, like the flower below, you can glue the very middle of a bloom into the center. I think it looks pretty. :-)
Enjoy gazing rapturously at your masterpiece! ♥
