Shabby chic friends card - chiffon flower tutorial

I'm sharing a card with lots of handmade embellishments including my chiffon flowers which I will be sharing a tutorial down below.  I made this card using Shabby Chic Butterfly digi paper, stickpin, fabric butterfly, heart and gem charms and of course my chiffon flowers.  









Here's how I made these chiffon flowers ...

You will need:
chiffon fabric
flower die
glue gun
tea light candle
twizzers
Layer 3 pieces of chiffon fabric together and run through the die machine with the flower die.
Once cut, separate the flowers.

Lightly heat each flower over the candle flame (please be careful as the chiffon fabric will burn fast).
Fold the flower in half.
Fold the flower in half once again.
Take your stamens and wrap each folded flower around the stem with a bead of hot glue.
adding on the second folded flower.
and the finally the third folded flower is added.


Here are the results ... soft fluffy chiffon flowers.

Thanks for reading, I hope you find this post helpful.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Love is patient, Love is kind - Shabby chic love card

If there's one thing I love doing, it'd be making soft, romantic and sweet card like this one.  It's a style I love so much, so pretty to look at and there's something about it that's just so calming don't you think?  I hope the person receiving this card will feel the same way I do.


I used a lot of frantage for that shabby look on the frame and "Love is patient, Love is kind" banner ...

I made these cute stick pins with fabric, finding and glass pearls ...

My shabby chic fabric butterfly can be found here ...
I made this flower using a texture fabric and some bridal embroidered tulle.  Also added a glass pebble, you can see how I made it here ...
