Coming across some rather ugly wallets and clutches on clearance at my local Marshall's I had a 'light-bulb idea!' Why don't I create something similar in texture to jazz these guys up! :) So, being the thrifty wannabe I am I found some cheap vinyl at Joanne's and decided to create another fun vinyl flower!
Don't ya just love you some neon orange!
I bought these two guys intending to use them as gifts :)
First we're going to create our pattern! Cut out a 5 inch circle in cardstock or other heavy paper.
Cut a spiral shape in your pattern.
Trace your pattern on the vinyl you've chosen and cut out.
Starting from the middle of your spiral, hot glue the center by wrapping clockwise.
As you continue to wrap your spiral, make small 'folds' in your vinyl to create a puckered look.
Continue to wrap and create small puckers in the vinyl.
When you reach the end of the spiral, tuck and glue the end piece to the back of the flower.
Add a button or other embellishment to the center.
Repeat the above steps for additional flowers.
And here is the finished look on a seemingly plain and boring clutch........not so boring anymore folks!!
Your turn to dress up your own plain and boring handbags/clutches/wallets/what-have-you's :)
Make it a beautiful day!
