Try It Tuesday~remember this....

Remember this on my felt cover for my dictionary~it was laid on the cover for the photo but it just seemed like it didn't belong there.   I love the upholstery button, the doily embellishment from JBS and the shell button and last, the shank button ~all stacked together like that.  I thought it would make a beautiful center for a fabric flower pin.

The pieces I'm using are the left over  strips from the felt dictionary cover.  The strips are about 6" long and I had 4 of them.  I put a line of hot glue on the Tim Holtz mat and scrunched up the felt along the hot glue line, giving the felt piece a gathered look.  Then I used an extra large gluber by Cosmo Cricket and started , in a circular motion, covering the base of the gluber and leaving a space in the middle for the button.  I hot glued it all down and added a felt circle to the back, of the flower, and then my pin .

See ya soon~
