I’m currently working on a super-special gift for Piper that includes felt flowers, and I noticed that one of the ‘signature looks’ of the Rifle Paper Co. flowers are these sweet, two-toned buds.
To make a Rifle Paper inspired felt flower-
2- Stack two pieces of coordinating felt or wool felt (I like the wool-felt blend better because it seems to cut better and just look better, but either one will work)
3- Cut out small stacked squares (about 3″ x 3″). Round the corners so you have two stacked oval/circles. Cut into a stacked spiral. (*To see pictures of 3, 4 and 5 see the photos below).
4- Separate the pieces of felt and trim off the edge of the interior spiral.
5- Hot glue the two spirals together.
6- Glue the inner edge of the spiral to the fringed tube. Continue to roll and glue until the two toned bud is finished.
