Felt Embellishments

Today I'm going to show you how to make a simple felt embellishment that I've decided to use as a book mark! I often remark that I have so much felt and never remember to use it and this week decided to make some embellishments that would be perfect for cards or layouts.
I chose a small flower die and cut out the large flower shape as well as the smaller shape in a different color.
You can use the embellishments a couple of ways - by themselves and attached using glue or glue dots, or glued around a fastener. I chose to glue these around a paper clip!

Let these dry for a good while using a strong glue so the paperclip adheres to the felt.
I finished the embellishment with a vintage button center.
The finished flowers can be clipped onto layouts or cards or to be used as a bookmark as I did here!

Supplies: Felt (PTI), Cuttlebug, Blossom Dies (Spellbinders), Paperclip, Vintage Button (my stash)
