Mother's Day Hop

Welcome to your third stop. If you didn't come by the way of Melissa Johnson., go back to the start to Amanda because you don't want to miss any of these projects.
I am going to share with you a card and a necklace I made for my mom this year.
The card was made with three different collections from Cosmo Cricket (Early Bird, Salt Air and Jolly By Jolly - the banner was made with it)
 Up next is a rolled flower necklace. I know it is not the kind of necklace you had in mind but my mom like camouflage material so I thought she would love this.
All you need is:
1 1/2" x 15" strip of fabric folded in half width-wise.
Chain
Hot glue
Beads
Felt

Steps
1. Cut a 2" circle out of felt.
2. Glue one end of the strip in the center. Twist stripe and glue down. Let it coil around itself.
3. Trim any excess felt off the flower.
4. Cut a strip of felt and glue to center of chain so it looks like a tab. Glue tab to back of flower.
5.Glue on you beads.

Your next stop is to Robyn .
Enjoy.

  1. Your card is so cheerful and cute! Love all the pretty papers you used.
    Great necklace and if mom is into camo fabric all the better but with it all twisted, it shows off all the beautiful colours so it can look a little more dressy. Awesome idea! :)
