Yield: 1

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Active Time: 5 Minutes

Total Time: 10 Minutes

Difficulty: Easy

1. First, choose the fabric that you will be working with. The size of the material that you choose will determine the size of your flower. You can use a square of felt, which is what I did, and an 8X12 inch square will make a relatively large flower.

2. Choose your colors – there are so many possibilities, so select a few pieces of fabric or felt in different colors if you want to make a colorful bouquet.

3. Cut the fabric in half so that you end up with a long, narrow piece – about 4 inches by 12 inches. If you are using an 8X12 inch sheet. Just literally cut it in half.

4. Fold your fabric in half so that you end up with a long, thick strip.

5. Start cutting lines from the two ends – not the fold. Be sure that you cut a little over halfway up toward the fold without actually cutting the fold.

6. Continue cutting your lines until the entire strip of fabric is done from end to end.

7. Add some hot glue in the middle of the unfolded strip and then refold to hold it together.

8. You will begin rolling the piece. Note that you can lay down a strip of hot glue and then roll. Do this until the entire strip is rolled and you see your flower.

9. Add a little hot glue to the end to keep the flower together.

10. Using green fabric or felt, create leaves. You do this by cutting out an oval or leaf-like shapes and adding just a bit of hot glue to one end.

11. Pinch the end together to form the leaf.

12. You now have a gorgeous fabric flower to use for your home décor, handmade headbands, gift toppers, etc.

13. Your finished flower should look something like this:

We??re back with our fifth selection for the Cool Mom Picks Book Club with The New Childhood: Raising Kids to Thrive in a Connected World a book by Jordan Shapiro I've raved about for months over on Cool Mom Tech. It covers the topic of digital parenting unlike any other book I have read, so I'm thrilled that we'll be reading it as part of our book club. And of course, I had to read a digital copy. How very meta!

An amazing thing that accompanies anniversaries every year is the cake tasting! The idea of lighting candles, beautiful rosettes on top, luscious fondant drape, the flavorsome layering makes up our mind to attend the celebration no matter how hard the excuse gets. In fact, it is the cake cutting ceremony that everybody waits for. Slicing up the deliciousness, the wedding cake flavors are the main attraction and believe us, you can’t go vanilla in it.

So summer is gone, I guess. It seems like every year goes quicker and quicker. I have tried to take more photos this year, to? make the memories last at least a little longer than the suntan lines!?I am always looking for unique ideas to incorporate into our scrapbooks. I was inspired today by a bulletin board that hangs in my daughters room to create this scrapbook page idea.
