Next up, I decided to try something a little more complicated — the felt bloom. Felt is so hot right now, and of course, I already had a good stash, very little of which has been used.
The photos and directions were easy to follow, plus Lisa included the pattern for the petals. She also included an example that she made from paper using the same directions.
Here’s my flower stack in process. Felt is wool felt from Papertrey Ink.
After the last petal was added, I shoved in some stamens and added some Stickles to the edges to bling it out. I’m not sure where this is going yet. Perhaps to top a keepsake box, or even on a headband for my girls.
Here’s another hot trend featured in the book — banners. These are miniature banners, just right for a card. I loved the simplicity of this idea, and the big impact it can make on a card.
I made a miniature banner for this Halloween card below.
- Great project examples with bright, beautiful photographs.
- Step-by-step tutorials with photos.
- Bonus ideas included in “More Beautiful Details”
- Some of the tutorials are basic for the more advanced crafter, but it’s always nice to have a refresher.
- Supplies used are listed in the back, so you have to do some flipping back and forth.
