Default TLC230 Fabric Flowers {7/20/09}

Everywhere you look there are more and more projects that include fabric on cards and scrapbook pages. Let's face it, fabric on cards and scrapbook pages is HOT! So today I have a technique that I'd love for you to try...not only is it easy, but it's a wonderful way to use up those bits and pieces of fabric scraps that you may have laying around the house. I called this TLC Fabric Flowers, (I had to call it something), but don't limit yourself to just flowers with this technique.

I saw THIS POST about printing digital paper directly onto fabric and thought that many of the same step would work wonderfully for making fabric flowers (or any embellishments) to be used on cards or layouts.

For those of you who don't have any fabric scraps lying around, you can go to any fabric store and even Wal-Mart carries little bits of cotton fabric in a wide variety of patterns and colors. Another great resource for fabric pieces is Good Will, Salvation Army or any thrift store - just pick up a used shirt or skirt, take it home and start cutting. One of my favorite sources of fabric is the wallpaper store...yep, that's right. Wallpaper stores throw out old-outdated sample books and are happy to have you come and take one or two off their hands. Most of these sample books contain coordinating fabric samples in the back. These are great to use because they are already bound to a paper backing and are basically "ready to use" and best of all, they are FREE!

One problem with fabrics and embellishments is that they tend to fray and are often a little floppy or flimsy for use on a project. I have a couple of solutions for you, so let's get started.

What you will need for this project:
Freezer Paper
Light weight fabric (a fabric without a lot of texture works best for this project)
Iron
Die cut dies (or Scissors - see instructions at the bottom for this version)

One problem with die cutting fabric is that it has a tendency to fray and bend, rather than achieving a nice, crisp cut, but we can fix that with a little freezer paper. Applying a paper backing to fabric helps the die to cleanly cut.

1) Heat your iron with no steam. If you are using cotton fabric, you can use a higher heat setting than you can if you are using something like polyester (which can "melt" at higher temps), so use your judgement here.
2) Cut a piece of fabric size appropriate for your diecut.
3) Trim a piece of freezer paper just a tad smaller than your fabric.
4) Lay the waxy side of the freezer paper face up on your ironing surface.
5) Lay the wrong side of your fabric onto the freezer paper (you want your "pretty side" facing you as you iron) and press the fabric allowing the heat of the iron to melt the waxy coating from the freezer paper into the fibers of your fabric.
6) You're now ready to use your die to form your fabric piece.

I tried, but could not get any of my punches to punch through the fabric/freezer paper. My dies works FANTASTICALLY, however. BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE A DIE for this technique either if you don't have them. As shown in my sample below, you can follow this same procedure and create a fabric embellishment or focal point from ANY stamped image that you have.


1) Choose a light, solid color fabric.
2) Follow steps 1-5 above
3) Using ink, stamp your image onto the fabric. Keep in mind that some fabrics will bleed (or wick out) the ink. I have learned that a good solid application of stay starch prior to applying to the freezer paper, cuts down the wicking a good deal.
4) Now just use your scissors to cut around the image and apply to your project.

One product that I'd also like to mention is called Designer Tac Double Tac Tape. It's made by a company called La D'ore and comes in a variety of sizes. The tape I used is 2" wide and I have used it on a variety of techniques, one being the white fabric stamped flowers in one of my samples. It's very similar to Tacky Tape, with the exception that it is 2" and my roll came with 15 yards.

Let your imagination run wild with a variety of patterns and colors. Add crystals, stickles, buttons, hand-stitching to your elements to really create a great look.

To view my sample card, CLICK HERE.

To view the gallery of creations using this technique, CLICK HERE.

Remember to use the keyword TLC230 when you upload your projects to the gallery.

AND ON ONE LAST NOTE: I will be away from the TLC challenges for the next two weeks. I have a familiar face filling in for me while I'm gone, so I'll see you all on August 10th.

I think perhaps you may have better luck with a thinner material than denim. The coating of wax paper on the freezer wrap is fairly thin, and works well with more light weight material. Not sure how well it would adhere to denim. Got any old shirts?

Oh, fun! I'm all over this challenge. One question -- do you remove the freezer paper after you die cut?

I did not remove my freezer paper. It's the paper backing that keeps the fabric from just bending and fraying in the die.

Sounds like good fun. No freezer paper like you have available here, but I think I have some good stiff interfacing, so I'll experiment and hope that it works in the Wizard. Otherwise I'll be resorting to stamping. Which has always bled for me in the past - but I do have spray starch. Thanks for this fun on the menu today, Lynn.

If you have spray adhesive, you could try that as a way to attach text weight paper to your fabric.

Interfacing may work. I'm anxious to see your results.

Good thought - I certainly do have spray adhesive. Lots of options to try, then. Thanks for that suggestion, Lynn.

Here is my Transparent Butterfly Card. I only call it transparent since you can see the flourish behind the butterflies.

I have a roll of Heat & Bond adhesive that I use all the time. YOu can buy this at Joanns.

In the end I seem to have ended up with a Bowl of Peonies. And a lot of fabric still on the floor - have to tidy it away now, maybe keep a few scraps out .

Default Hello everyone

Here is my entry for another fun challenge. Thanks Lynn, this was so much fun. I loved playing with the fabrics this morning.

I used a square nestie to cut my fabric glued on paper, ( no freezer paper). Worked out pretty good.


Get well soon jammies

No - not wax paper, FREEZER paper...there is a difference. If you have spray adhesive, you can use that and attached your fabric (which you get from the bag of clothes you were going to donate to charity...lol) to a piece of typing paper.

Is parchment paper the same as freezer paper? I have parchment but no freezer...

I'll need to run out to Hobby Lobby to get some fabric... just wondering if I need to stop for the correct paper too?

No, parchment paper is not the same as freezer paper. Parchment doesn't have any waxy side, which is needed to adhere the paper to the fabric. There are other ways to adhere fabric to paper too, which has been mentioned in the thread.

I always look forward to Monday Mornings...the hubby is off to work and I can look up the TLC. As I was looking this morning...I realized it said 7/20...yikes...where has the month gone. I've been soooo busy that I haven't been able to participate. Today I have all day to do nothing but play...and I can't find freezer paper. Went to walmart...and grocery store...and no freezer paper. I'm thinking of going to the meat counter and asking for a few sheets. I'll get back to you on this one. Wish me luck.

Good luck. You don't even see freezer paper in most of the grocery stores. I believe meat markets still use them, but I haven't seen meat packaged at the grocery store in like FOREVER. The freezer paper is usually located with the plastic wrap and baggies. I hope you find something useful so you can play along.

I love this technique. My sizzix bigz dies are perfect for this. I never thought to use freezer paper. I used something from Joann's called Craft Fuse. Off to try and will post my creation later. Thanks for a great technique!

This is my first time uploading to a thread, hope it worked! If it did, this is my attempt. I forgot all about this fabric I bought when I first purchased my big shot, thanks for reminding me and for sharing this great technique!

OHHHH! I sold all my old fabrics in our garage sale! I will have to see what I can dig up! Last time we did a technique that involved the ironing board, I ended up doing 2 hours of ironing. That was the last time that my board was out, so looks like this afternoon I will be at the ironing again! Could you post a technique about every two months or so that involves ironing so that I will keep up? Thanks! This look like a fun technique!!

Oooh! Great challenge, Lynn! I'd love to play today, but probably not until the weekend!

Thanks for incorporating fabric into your challenge! And I hope you'll be doing something fun during the next 2 weeks!

Next Monday I leave for CHA in Orlando and since I'd be away the entire week next week, I thought I'd better have someone cover me on my first Monday back to work...you know how it is...when you're away, there are a ton of e-mails, correspondence to process, blah, blah, blah. I haven't decided if it's worth going away because it seems like it's double the work when you get back...lol
