So if you were here yesterday, you are now obsessed with making fabric rosettes (if you weren't already). Today you're here to see how to turn them into a clippie, so you can clip them to things. Because you love them so much that you want to take them everywhere you go, right? You are not alone.
Fabric Rosette Clip Tutorial
*Fabric rosettes (from this tutorial)
*Hair clips (I like the little alligator clips from the beauty supply store)
*Felt for leaves and to hold clip
*Fabric glue (we like Fabri-Tac)
1. Cut a circle of coordinating felt to match the size of the bottom of your rosette. Clip your clip to it, flat side up.
2. Apply fabric glue to felt and clip.
3. Press felt to the bottom of your rosette.
4. Cut a small leaf from green felt. Glue it to the top of clip. This covers up the end of the clip on a small rosette.
Next, clip it to something! I love them on baby headbands.
I recently clipped these to a church lesson handout. They made the handout cute, and then the girls had something to wear that would remind them of the things they learned in class.
Or, you clip them to a piece of jewelry, like a necklace or a couple of beaded bracelets.
I made this large rosette for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
To make the clip work on a larger rosette, glue a strip of felt in the middle of the flower with the clip glued on as shown above.
I clipped it to a card and sent it in a padded envelope with a note to remove the flower and wear it. She wears it on a pretty scarf or her purse. Just FYI, the paper I used is from the DELOVELY line by Cosmo Cricket. Love it.
What are you going to clip your rosettes on?
