Gather a bouquet of blooms for your scrapbook layout by creating a variety of handmade fabric flower accents and combining them into a single, striking border. Two types of handmade fabric flowers work beautifully for this type of border: gathered flowers and rolled flowers. You can make these flowers from any fabric of your choice, though sturdier fabric, such as felt, works best for the gathered flowers.
How to Create a Rolled Flower
Cover cardstock circle with liquid adhesive or apply a jumbo adhesive dot. Adhere end of fabric strip to center.
Twist fabric in tight spiral pattern as you adhere to circle. Tuck in end.
How to Create a Gathered Flower
Cut circle from fabric, and cut slits in circle to create petals.
Apply liquid adhesive or hot glue to center of circle, and gather flower petals toward center. Hold until petals are secure.
