Inspiration monday :)

Hi my friends, and happy monday. :)
It is beautiful spring in Oslo today. The sun is shining and the spring-flowers have started to peek out :)
I was so inspired by the spring-weather I just had to create some flowers for todays Inspiration Monday. :)
These flowers are not only cute as embellishments for papercrafts, but can be used as bookmarks for your favourite books too :)
They are made of patterned paper by 3ndypapir, felt, fabric and paperclips.

Cut strips of patterned paper, aprx 1 inch X 12 inch.
Fold the strip as a accordion.
Punch two 1 1/2 inch circles of patterned paper.
Add hot glue to one of the circles and add the accordion-folded paper-strip as a circle on top.
This is now the base of your flower.

Cut out a circle of colorful fabric.
Cut out a slightly bit larger circle of heavy woolen felt.
sew a button on top of the fabric and felt circles.

MidtstillAttach the felt and fabric circles to the center of the paper flower with hot glue.
Grab the other 1 1/2 inch patterned paper-circle and the large paper clip.
Add Hot glue to the paper-circle and attach the paperclip, and add the paper-flower on top.

The flowery bookmark is ready for your favourite book. :)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a wonderful week.
