Tuesdays with The Sampler.....

and a tutorial.

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a great day!  I know I am.  I am totally in love with this month's kit from The Sampler.  When I first got my kit I was so happy to see it contained two sheets of the Creative Imaginations polka dot felt.  I knew I wanted to make lots of yummy flowers.

First, here is my project...
Sorry about the color/lighting...but it has been raining for a while and I just can't seem to get good photos.

Here is how I made the fun flower.
You will need, a fabric glue, a chipboard circle, your felt, a flower center (I used the flair that came in the kit), and four circles of the same size.  I used a die to cut my circles, but I am sure you could use scissors as well.
You can see here I have cut four circles of the same size and folded each in half.  Don't worry if they don't stay folded...they will.
 For the first circle, fold in half and place glue only on one quarter.
  Glue to your chipboard circle with the fold in the middle.
 Place glue on the second half circle and place perpendicular to the first, again with the fold in the middle.
Then following the same technique place the third circle
The fourth circle is a little tricky.  You will need to place half of it on top of one quarter of the third circle and the other half under the first circle. (this is a little like how you may fold and seal a box if you don't have tape.)
Finally add your center.

And here is the final flower on my layout.  So fun and such great dimension.  I hope you have fun with your felt.  And be sure and pop over to The Sampler blog for more great ideas, the sketch and card challenges and your chance to win an extra bonus prize!

Hugs.
