And a few more  felt flower tutorials...

Felt Flower Tutorial 1

Felt Flower Tutorial 2


  1. i love the felt flowers and the tutorials you've found for us. Can you look towards embellishments that are boyish for an article for the future as I really struggle to embellish my sons pages. thanks

  2. The second tutorial looks like Maya Roads flowers!!! Great tutorials.. thanks for sharing.

  3. Gabrielle's post is fantastic! Thanks for all the great ideas!

  4. Thanks for posting the links to the boy's embellies! I was thinking the same thing, but did not have time to link those posts.

  5. These are amazing! They look just like the bloomers!

  6. Happy Snapper,
    Last month we did a whole add-on kit for just "boy" stuff...here is the link to TONS of boy embellishment tutorials. http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/05/tutorial-all-boy-embellishments.html I'm sure we will be doing another "masculine" focus soon, because we think lots of scrapbookers have problems finding nice masculine embellishments! Thank you for the suggestion :)

  7. Gabrielle these are awesome. I will be making some to add to my kit!

  8. I've already given this list to Happysnapper (she is on my team on UKS) but for anyone else who is struggling with boy elements

    cogs, buttons, corded ribbon with buckles (looks like trouser belt), washers, nuts etc, netting (bit like fishing nets) pencil shavings (just as they are) little springs from retractable ball pens chain, string, sealing wax impression, paper clips, raffia cord
    will that do for a starter?

  9. thanks all, can't believe I missed that post last month

  10. Wow, again I like the counterfeit flowers better than the originals!!! TFS
