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-
1- Gather a pile of coordinating wool felt (I keep coming back to this palette of pinks and peaches, but I also love the brighter pops of color in this palette and have already ordered this wool felt palette as well)
2- Cut a thin rectangle of felt (about 1/2″ tall and 4″ wide). Fringe one edge. Roll into a fringe-edged tube, hot gluing as you roll to secure.
3- 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)
4- 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 4, 5 and 6 see the photos below).
5- Separate the pieces of felt and trim off the edge of the interior spiral.
6- 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.
