  • Flower Soft®

  • Flower Soft PVA Glue (Aleene's® Tacky Glue)

  • Powder Tray, or sheet of paper

  • Chipboard

  • Scrap Paper

  • Markers, cardstock or patterned paper to further embellish chipboard


  1. Step 1

    Add Flower Soft Glue to parts of the chipboard you'd like to cover.

  2. Step 2

    Place your chipboard in a powder tray or on a sheet of paper and add a heavy coat of Flower Soft over the adhesive.

  3. Step 3

    Take a scrap piece of paper and place it over the chipboard.

    Press down to embed Flower Soft in the adhesive.

  4. Step 4

    Tap off extra Flower Soft and replace in the container.

    Set chipboard piece aside to dry.

  5. Step 5

    Color any blank chipboard spots with a marker.


    If you're paper piecing any areas, make sure to do this before adding adhesive and Flower Soft.

How different is this from flocking, and is it as messy and hard to clean up?

Hi, everyone!

You can find more information on Flower Soft (including pricing) here on our Product Review page:

We have purchasing links on the right side of the page, and many fellow stampers have responded with additional locations, too. I found mine at my local scrapbook store.

Is it the same as flock?
Well, same concept as flock. It's just. . . fluffier. You'll notice that it's a thicker product. When you touch it - it's more springy than soft in the package, almost sponge-y. When applied, it does give a nice, soft look to your flowers and images.

Is it messy?
Like glitter and flock and embossing powder, it does have the potential to be a little messy, yep. Just work over some scrap paper, and follow the suggestions in the Product Focus and tutorials (work over scrap paper and put the product in a bigger container when fluffing for SURE!), and you'll be fine. Also, it may go without saying, but turn the fan OFF! smile

So cute

Does the flower soft "flake" off after it dries??? Or is it pretty permanent in the long run?
