Tutorial: Large Rose Clip

The other day, a lady approached me with this flower, asking if I could make one in a different color because that's the only color they had at the store.

(sorry it's so bad quality! I didn't have very much light :-\ )


So I started getting to work and came up with this!

Annnnnd... if you want to make your own, let me show you!!!

I started with this really beat down, tank top I had saved for a while because I knew I could do something with it! But you can use basically any type of material!


Cut a strip about oh... probably 3 inches or so all the way around....


And since I wanted more of a finished look, I folded it over.


Grab some tulle and cut a strip about the same width as the folded fabric


Cut out a felt circle (however big you want it) and put a glue dot in the middle (with both fabric and tulle)



LOOSELY wrap it around and keep glueing (You want to make it super loose)


And keep going until you're done!!! 

Then I put an alligator clip on it and stuck one of my labels on it and wala!


But then I also asked it she wanted something in the middle and she chose pearls, that's just what I did!



Super cute right?!
