Stylin' Stampin' Squad February Blog Hop - fabric!!

Another month has zipped on past and it's time for another blog hop with the Stylin' Stampin' Squad!! I am so glad you have come for a visit and if this is your first time to my blog ~ welcome! If you're making your way through the talented crafters of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad then you have probably hopped on over from Justin's blog at JK Cards!

February's theme was to create a project or card using Stampin' Up!'s beautiful fabric. I'll be honest - this was no easy task for me! I don't sew and I haven't even attempted using fabric in any of my creations. But, I am trying to step outside of my comfort zone this year, so I was up for the challenge! Thankfully there was no sewing necessary to join in the fun! It took me a little awhile (OK, a long while) to come up with what I wanted to make, but in the end I am excited about how it turned out. I may be giving this to my daughter...I think she'll love it!

{Fabric-Covered Magnetic Board}
Project Recipe 
Stamp Set: A Fitting Occasion
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Tangerine Tango
 Fabric: Flirtatious Designer Fabric
Dimensionals, Soda Pop Tops
Tools: 3/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch

Some added touches...
{a fabric bow}
{soda pop top magnets}
{no-sew fabric flowers}
Although I was a little scared at first to get started, these flowers really are super simple to make. I used varying lengths of fabric to create the three different sizes, but the width of the fabric strip was 1-3/4". I used Sticky Strip on the top of the fabric strip (not pictured) and folded it in half and adhered together. Then I cut slits 1/4" apart. As to not waste more Sticky Strip, I used hot glue instead and started rolling my flower. (A little more detailed tutorial can be found HERE by Nancy Ferb.)
 I even made a flower for my daughter's hair. I simply attached it to a barrette.
 Next up on the hop is Jennifer at NW Stamper!
Thanks for stopping by...please come back again for a visit!
