A – I used the big and small Flower Burst dies and cut them each out of a purple fabric vinyl. I expected it to cut through all the details, but it did not. The outer edge of the die cut the outside of the flower and the other die blades made more of an emboss to the vinyl. While it was unexpected, I really like how both flower ended up looking
B – I have this gorgeous cork fabric that was introduced at the Creativation 2020 conference in January. I have been wanting to stencil on it with ink. I chose an simple dotted stencil and used a purple and blue ink to stencil the design.
C – I die cut the big Flower Burst from natural cork fabric and the small Flower Burst from the stenciled cork. I ran them through the die cutting machine twice and they cut out the details beautifully
D – I have four flower pieces ready to create the pin. Two are from cork fabric and two from the purple vinyl
E – I used the holes in the middle of the small cork flower to threading twine in and our of the holes to tighten the fabric causing it to pucker.
F – I thread the same twine from the back of the cork fabric through the front of the small purple vinyl flower and tied it in the back creating the small flower cluster. I repeated Step E & F with the large cock and vinyl Flower Bursts and attached both cluster together with twine in the middle to form one larger flower as seen above
H – I die cut two leaves from vinyl and ended up with the same gorgeous embossed effect
I – i used Fabri-Tac glue to attach the leaves to the back of the flower
J – I used Gem-Tac to attache a purple acrylic gem to the middle of the flower
K – I used a low temp glue gun to attach the pin back to the back of the flower to finish the pin. Below is a photo of the flower pin. A friend of mine, Jill, wearing the pin to an event. I love how the color pops in the sunlight
