Lollipop Fabric Flowers


I tried to make these lollipop fabric flowers before but they didn't turn out good because I hand cut the circle.  So I finally bought the Sizzix circle #2 and made these.

Tutorial can be found here.  I used the tea light candle to heat the edge of the  circles instead of the lighter.

I am entering this to the following:

These flowers are out of this world... these are my fave flowers out of all the ones you have made. I like the imperfect look. Makes them look great. And I love the distressed effect on them.

Happy new year with lots of love,

Hi Helen,

Thanks for your comments... sure feels good to be back in blogland. You all are such an important part of my life now that I miss not keeping in touch with you.

Regarding the cold in India - since it is a huge country it has diverse weather conditions. The Northern part is generally very cold in winter with snow in the Himalayas. The capital New Delhi is in the North so it gets quite cold. But this winter seems to be the coldest ever.

Great flowers Helen. Love the shiny look to the fabric. I never would have thought of using a tea light for the edges.

These are beautiful flowers! You are so brave to use flames to do the edges of the flower. Not something for.
