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.

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!!!
