Product Description

Manufacturer Description
Flower Soft is one of the most versatile products invented. There’s no heat and no special equipment, all that’s required is some glue and a little imagination. Mainly used in cardmaking and scrapbooking (it’s acid free), Flower Soft is also used by egg crafters, dolls house enthusiasts, model makers, children (it’s non toxic), and in general crafts. When used with the right kind of glue, it is also great on fabric!

These soft, colored sprinkles come in a little pot and transform cardmaking, scrapbooking and many other crafts and hobbies in an instant. Using Flower Soft glue to highlight any areas of design, text or borders, it’s as simple as sprinkling over your favorite color to add a whole new dimension to your project. Using the paper-coated wires, Flower Soft will also create the most beautiful 3D flowers that you can actually arrange into your own little bouquet or vase. Of course it’s not all about flowers as you can create fun animals, snowy scenes and elegant trims to fashion stamps.

  1. FlowerSoft = Fun Texture!


    By Mary Brown

    CAUTION: contents of the Flower Soft container expand to four times the volume when you open the lid!!!! No . . . really, I'm not kidding! Okay, it doesn't 'fly out' of the container but as per the instructional video, you want to open your container of Flower Soft and put it in a MUCH bigger container. If you are a person who likes neat and clean, think of this like the glitter that gets all over everything. But . . . it's a GOOD thing!

    I watched the video that was on their website and found it very helpful for getting started. They really recommend using their Flower Soft glue and I agree. The glue is so thick that it really works well with their product...especially when trying to do the flower stems for a bouquet. When working with this product, I did the portion of my project that had the Flower Soft on it first and set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest in order to give it a chance to dry properly. The starter kit is great to give you a basic idea of the product and lots of stuff to use. I would recommend though, getting some extra single colors and extra glue. I do like the individual colors the best! The video on the website does give you some great ideas of ways to use their products.

    What I like best about this product is the unique texture that it adds to your projects. I used it for the center of a fabric flower, grass, flower stems and added texture to flowers. It is very easy to use, although I do recommend the Flower Soft glue. It really does stick GREAT . . . need to leave enough dry time.

    As for the downside of this product . . . hmmm . . . the only thing I can think of is that those wacky little 'flowers' get on just about everything, but my little spaniel does look cute with the pink ones in her hair!

    Bottom line: GREAT, easy to use product for adding fun texture to your projects!

  2. Life-Like Flowers, Instantly!


    By Rose Ann Reynolds

    Flower Soft is a product we've been seeing all over the galleries and blogs, so it was exciting to get my hands on it, and give it a try! I was actually gifted some Flower Soft by a friend last Christmas, but never felt confident enough to give it a try until I had the tip sheet, and video to refer to.

    I found the "Twenty Top Tips!" sheet most helpful to review before using the product. If you have some extra time and appreciate detailed instructions, you may want to consider the instructional DVD. It's quite lengthy, though, so you'll want to grab a bag of popcorn, your favorite soda, and kick back for a while.

    When I first opened my pot of Flower Soft, I was surprised at how compacted it was. You'll need to empty the product into a larger container and fluff it up a bit before using. Beware, because it can get a bit messy (make sure your area is clear). Because the product is so compacted, you can be assured that you will get a lot of use out of just one little pot of Flower Soft.

    The glue was thicker than I imagined it was be, and though it dries clear, I didn't want it to be visible on my projects.

    I wanted to use some of the pretty Toppers for my creations, and was surprised to find they were not die cut. It didn't bother me to trim them out, but if you're not the trimming type of crafter, you may not care for them.

    After I made a variety of different projects using the Flower Soft, I decided that I prefer to add the product directly to my stamped images. The bouquets and urns really add that extra "WOW" factor to your hand delivered cards, though, and I know that I will be creating many more projects with my beautiful Flower Soft!

    Pros: Quick, easy, many colors, adds life-like beauty, the kit has a wonderful ensemble of items to get you started

    Cons: Can be a bit messy, pieces of the product were falling off even after sufficient drying time (perhaps I didn't use enough glue?)

  3. Fuzzy Texture with Flower Soft


    By Beate Johns

    I was excited to play with this product. I had heard so much about already. I started with opening my Pretty Pots Starter kit. It contains everything you need to get started, including instructions.

    I like that this product is so easy to use. Add glue and sprinkle Flower Soft. Even kids can do this. The glue comes out the bottle easily. With its fine tip, it can be applied to small spots as well as bigger areas. Flower Soft is a bunch of very small sprinkles. When you first open a pot, you should take it all out, fluff it up, and put it in a bigger container. It won't fit in your old container anymore. Or....you can take what doesn't fit in the original container anymore and share with a friend. If you are a little OCD like me, you will like to keep it in the container it comes in. One pot will last you a long time.

    The kit also includes a pack of Flower Soft Wires. You cut those apart, add glue and create flowers this way. I would suggest metal scissors, wire cutters or a old pair of scissors. Cutting the paper coated wires could harm dainty scissors. Once you add Flower Soft to the wire, you stick it in a Styrofoam block that comes with the kit as well to let the flowers dry. That sponge was a little bit too dense, and when I went to remove the dried flowers, some of the paper coating ripped a bit. I think I will use a different block for that from now on because I do like how the flowers came out.

    The one thing you have to be aware of is that Flower Soft is a bunch of tiny sprinkles. Those who know me know that I only like glitter when it is confined. Flower Soft will get on your work area, even if you use a powder tray or an extra sheet of paper underneath. If you don't mind glitter and flock, you will love this product. If you don't....you will get used to some sprinkles on the table, because it is worth it!

    Flower Soft does create beautiful flowers and wonderful texture to your images. It is a wonderful addition to every stamper's product arsenal.

  4. Touchy, Feely Flower Soft


    By Ashley Newell

    When I heard about this product to be reviewed, I was excited to use something different in my projects. I really like how Flower Soft introduces you to the product and gives proper instructions on how to use it effectively. This was a great help to get me started. I love applying flowers to my projects, but was hesitant about the product after getting my hands on it. The containers of Flower Soft come tightly packed, so you must be ready to get dirty when using it. I had to sprinkle Flower Soft on my project multiple times to get the complete coverage I wanted. Therefore, be prepared for a major clean up job. I suggest using scrap paper or an embossing tray to catch the excess Flower Soft for easier clean up. Even after your project dries, expect some Flower Soft remnants to fall off.

    They offer a kit; however, I think it is limited to a certain kind of style. I encountered difficulty using items in the kit, such as a vase, without altering my personal style. For a traditional look, Flower Soft is perfect. I applied it to my projects in the trendiest way possible, but felt constrained. They product’s wide color variety is perfect to apply to many projects.

    I would recommend this product to a crafter who loves to add texture and dimension to their projects. The traditional crafter would also enjoy being able to create a vase full of flowers. Although I do not think it’s a product to use on every project, it is perfect for covering chipboard and stamped images, as well as adding the perfect pop to flowers.

  5. Sprinkle Some Floral Dimension


    By Angel Wilde

    I had no idea what to expect when we were told we were going to be featuring Flower Soft on our next Product Focus. I had never really heard of the product, so before my package of Flower Soft arrived, I researched the product via Google. I’m not sure what closet I’ve been hiding in, but there was wealth of information that popped up!

    Having been advised to watch the instructional video, I’m grateful that I listened before digging into the package when it arrived. As I learned, Flower Soft needs to be placed into a larger container and “fluffed up” before using. The floral sprinkles come in little plastic pots. I was amazed at how much product was in the pot when I dumped it into a bowl! I didn’t think there was any way I was going to get it back into the container!

    There are so many uses for Flower Soft. The sprinkles make great flower centers. They can also be added to stamped images for lovely dimension! Using the wires to make flowers was the most fun of all!

    My words of advice for Flower Soft:

    Expect stray sprinkles! They travel well.
    Watch the video or tutorials and/or read the fabulous tip sheet included.
    Allow drying time.
    Use the Flower Soft Tacky glue. Any other adhesives I tried just didn’t compare.
    Ziploc [containers or bags] are a good storage solution after removing the sprinkles from the pot.

    Being a crafter who loves dimension, I really enjoyed playing with these little sprinkles! Flower Soft is like nothing I’ve ever created with before. I’ve got several more ideas to try out with this innovative and unique product.

  6. Fun and Fluffy – Not Just for Flowers!


    By Jami Sibley

    I had the pleasure of seeing Flower Soft demonstrated at CHA in Anaheim this past January and I was immediately intrigued. Not only did it look like a ton of fun, but there was such a wonderful variety of samples in the booth. I could hardly wait to get my hands on this product to play with it myself. At first glance it might look the flock we are all familiar with, but seeing it in person or working with it, you immediately realize it’s something totally different. Flower Soft is much more dimensional than flock and has an entirely different look. I found it really fun and easy to work with and I am loving coming up with different possibilities for it. Some ways I have already used it or plan to use it are: flower bouquet, cupcake frosting, leaves on a tree, black texture on penguin, snow, inside a shaker and I just keep thinking of more.

    I found that the Flower Soft works best when dumped out of its original jar and into a larger container and *fluffed up* with my fingers before use. Be aware, however, that it will not readily be returned to that original jar, so you’ll want to have a storage option ready to go if you don’t want to end up with fluff everywhere! I had some small rectangular plastic containers with sealed lids that worked perfectly. Another tip - you might consider splitting the jars with a friend allowing you to get more colors for the same price. The 30 ml. jar of Flower Soft contains a lot of product once fluffed up and I really can’t imagine using up even half a jar for quite some time. You will definitely want to go ahead and get several colors since you’ll find more and more ways to use it as soon as you start playing with it. Be sure to try out one of the mixed colors too (Sweet Pea is my personal favorite). I highly recommend Flower Soft to add texture to your cards and projects and, heck, it’s just a ton of fun to play with!

How will flower soft (on a card) hold up once it’s been inserted in an envelope and mailed?  ie: Does it puff back to it’s previous shape, or remain squished flat?

Julie   |  Wed Mar 25, 2009 at 9:56 AM

I LOVE this product! I now carry it in my online store I am so crazy about it! My SCS local friends and i are going to have a flower soft party (:

julie Crossley   |  Wed Mar 25, 2009 at 12:15 PM

I love the flower soft as well.  I recently started carrying it in my store and am demonstrating it this weekend at a card making workshop.

Simon Says Stamp has carried Flower Soft since last summer’s CHA in Chicago. Several of our team members fell in love with it.  Now those flowers are flying off of our shelves.  It is true, they plump up to 4 times their volume once you take it out of their jars!

A little goes a long way and their glue is the best to use with it too, it’s nice and thick.

Great review ladies!  Thank you!

This was an excellent review, thanks everyone—so much of the mystery is gone, and with it the fear!  Sounds like an excellent product and easy to use!

My new LSS didn’t have Flower Soft, but I asked about.  The owner got right on-line (then on the phone) to get the low-down.  Should have it in the shop very soon.  I can’t wait.  Thanks for highlighting this product and enabling us all further.

Randa   |  Thu Mar 26, 2009 at 9:51 AM

Can’t wait to try it.

Great video full of info….but the BEST part was my name in there wink  hee hee hee LORI!!

Lori Barnett   |  Thu Mar 26, 2009 at 2:24 PM

My friend/mentor/enabler used her Copic air-brush system to color the ivory flower soft.
I bought cheap Christmas cards at Dollar Tree and mixed the two greens and covered the trees with it and used Stickles for the garland.  It made beautiful cards.

ginger   |  Thu Mar 26, 2009 at 6:10 PM

I would be interested to know if anyone has tried this with the Alene’s Tacky Glue? (as the Flower Soft website was out of the glue). I do have some tacky glue on hand if that would work? 

Last, as Julie asked above..has anyone tried mailing a card to see how it held up during delivery process…meaning…does it get smooshed down, but “come alive” when opened…know what I mean??

Really sounds like a FUN product..a little messy perhaps? but that’s what makes it FUN to me!  Take care ALL…

Jo   |  Fri Mar 27, 2009 at 2:48 AM

The Flower Soft glue *is* Aleene’s Tacky Glue, just repackaged in an easy-to-handle container with a fine-tipped applicator. smile We have this info on the tutorial pages, and should probably add it here, too. smile

I’ve received a few cards accented with Flower Soft and it does mail well - they were just as pretty once I got them!

jenn   |  Fri Mar 27, 2009 at 3:20 AM

Guess I missed it under the tutorials..can’t see too good sometimes…sorry. 

GLAD to hear it holds up in mailing!! Anxious to get mine and try it. 

Thank you!!

JO   |  Fri Mar 27, 2009 at 3:32 AM

Colleen Brandstetter   |  Tue Jul 5, 2011 at 3:07 AM

Hi I purchared flower soft from a tv show but have never seen the video’s of what to do with the wire’s.  My own initative told me that you put the glue onto thw wire then sprinkle the flower soft over, but I was not sure.

However I am so pleased I watched your video. after watching the video I had another thought, perhaps to make the stem more bushy once dry you could use the glue again sparingley and add more dimention to whats already created. I will have to try it after all it’s my first time. But thanks for the info Denise
