To make these little blooms you have to use a satin type of fabric. It can't be 100% cotton or it won't work. Cut little circles that nest inside of each other, light a candle and hold the edge of the circle to the edge of the flame. It folds in a little and seals the edge so the fabric won't fray. After that, layer the circles to make the blooms and use buttons or beads and sew them together. You can also layer in some toile to add more texture to the bloom. I stamped the vase from the set Funky Flowers and cut it out. I covered it with crackle stuff (there's a close up in my gallery). I added little blings on the edge and accented with some coordinating dp. There is a little magnetic strip on the inside of each of the cards so they can be a bookmark or a bag tag.
