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!
