So the other day, while my sister and her family were visiting, we sat down for a little “craft hour” and experimented making different Rolled Flower Gifts.
It was so much fun!!!

In case you haven’t tried making these Rolled Flowers — here’s what you do:

maddy cutting out the fabric
1. Cut a 1-inch wide strip of material. We used fat quarters and cut one strip for a small flower, and combined two strips to make a larger flower.


2. Fold the strip in half width-wise and add a dot of hot glue, then immediately roll up the material {keep it folded in half} about 10 rolls. Then secure with another drop of hot glue.

3. Now fold the material in toward the center of the flower and continue rolling the material around the center of the flower. Hot glue a dot every rotation.
4. Continue this way until you run out of material and secure the end of the fabric to the flower.

5. Put hot glue on the back of the flower and attach it to a piece of felt.
6. Once the glue has cooled, cut around the flower on the felt.

7. Now you have a flower you can make into a pin, hairclip, or ring. Combine more than one flower to make a necklace by attaching the flowers to a piece of felt. Put pieces of chain underneath the flowers to secure the chain to the felt and flowers. Then cut around all of the flowers and attach a clasp to the end of the chain and a jump ring to the other end.

And an even easier and faster gift idea is hot gluing embellishments to the ring blanks or hairclip/bookmark forms.
button clips and bookmarks
We also covered some buttons with fabric and hot glued them onto the blanks.
This makes a great gift.
Add the bookmark to a book or bookstore gift card for a fun stocking stuffer!!!

And if you make some Rolled Flower Jewelry, get your friends together for a Girls Craft Night.
 Projects are always more fun with friends!!!

    I discovered I really love this new hobbby <a href='http://www.learnbeading.com/’>beading</a&gt; because I get to be creative and I have a unique gift to friends and family that I can personally make and it gives them happiness. I htink everyone should try it out if they have the time. I thought I wouldn't like it but fortunately I did. Thanks to websites like these, I get to learn new designs and share my experience as well.

  2. Love these, I have been wanting to make these with paper and put on ring blanks. BTW, where did you find the rings blanks? I have been looking locally and can't find them. Would prefer to not have to buy online.

    Ohhhh! Perfect timing. I recently made a pillow cover that's too plain. These would be a perfect embellishment to add! Thanks for the instructions. :)

    I love the whole tutorial, this is one I have wanted to try for a while. I go away for the summer, and WOW you are so famous now. Congrats on your webshow! The book will be next. Now that I have a little time in my schedule, so looking forward to checking back here on a regular basis. -K

  7. i have tried to make these and by watching your you-tube I see that I am not twisting my material enough and I need to wrap my flower tighter. Thanks so much! Now a little idea for you when making your tutorial, maybe change the direction of the video-er, the window puts too much light in the picture and it's hard to see your face. You are very at-ease and make this very easy to follow. Thanks again!

    I love the roll-up idea. The jewelry looks absolutely fantastic but the book mark here attracts my attention most. Pinning it. Thanks for sharing.
