rolled felt flowers
Cut a long strip of felt, I prefer wool felt (my strips were about 18" long and 2" wide) then fold over and glue lengthwise...just along the edge.
Then cut little slits however wide you like, and end them about 3/8" from the bottom. (notice my awesome new scissors? The nice folks at Olfa sent them to me...and they are fantastic for this kind of project!)
Also, cutting closer to the bottom helps the flower lay flatter.
Then start rolling and gluing along the bottom edge.
Add a couple of felt leaves and you've got a cute flower for a headband, clip, or brooch!
Tip: try cutting the slits at an angle for a different look!
