Crafting With Felt Flowers: Floral Notecards Tutorial

Felt flowers make great card toppers!

Felt Flower Notecards Tutorial

This week I've been sharing ideas for easy ways to reuse the flower templates from my April wreath tutorial. For the final project of the week: why not make felt flowers to make simple greetings cards?

Felt Flower Wreath Tutorial

I used my flowers to decorate small cards, but you could easily use more flowers to decorate larger cards or simply resize the templates to fit. You could also use the templates to cut the flower shapes from coloured paper or card! Just glue all the pieces in place instead of sewing the flowers together.

This tutorial was originally designed for The Village Haberdashery's blog, using felt and other craft supplies from their shop.

You will need:

- The flower templates included in my April wreath tutorial
- Blank cards
- Wool felt in assorted colours
- Matching sewing threads
- Double-sided sticky tape or craft glue
- A fine black pen and a ruler
- Sewing needles and pins
- Sewing scissors or embroidery scissors

To make the cards:

Use the templates to cut out various flower pieces, arranging them on the blank cards to plan your layout. If you’re layering felt pieces, sew them together with running stitch and matching sewing thread. Stick all the felt pieces to the cards using double-sided sticky tape or craft glue. And that's it! Easy peasy, right?

For this design I used templates C, D, G, and H.

To make this flower, use templates B and G, cut two small leaf shapes from green felt, and draw a straight line for the flower stem.

One large, layered flower looks very striking! Position it towards the top of the card then write your chosen message in the space below it. I used templates B, D, F and H to create the flower.
