creating Vintage flowers

I've been sitting and waiting for months for a circle die to come in from my distributor. I wan to create Lollipop flowers. I'm sooo stupid sometimes. There I have the Tattered Floral Die from Tim Holtz and I didn't even think to use it.. why because it's not a circle??? duh and duh again!! so anywho this morning I tried to cut my satin fabric with it and would you believe it cut like butter!! Not like my Cricut which is on strike this week. I'm having such problems with it. Well anywho again once I cut this fabric I said to meself okay now what? so I cut about 10 of these out and I grabbed my heat tool and a long tweezer and went to work melting the fabric. rolling the petals and melting them. Add a feather, some pearls and a leaf and I came up with this.
i'm going to I think add some crystal Stickles to it to give it some shimmer..

The picture does it no justice. It looks so much better in person..

So tell me what do you peoples think?

I would love any comments even if you hate them!! ROFL!!

here is another one I just did real fast


  1. Robyn,
    This is GORGEOUS!!!! LOVE it! I would love a Vagabond...or even the tattered flowers die, but not sure if it will work with my Cuttlebug. This is fabulous!!! Would LOVE to give it a try (although, I don't think I could do it as well as you did!) Great idea, thanks for sharing!

  2. These flowers are amazing. Now I want to do some too. Note to self: put Vagabond on my wish list, oh and the die (lol).

  3. These are fabulous Robyn! I love how they turned out.

  4. I totally LOVE them Robyn! Awesome work! I have a flower die for the Sizzix but its a real old one like a daisy that I doubt would work for something like this. I've never tried cutting fabric other than denim with it either.

  5. I thhink they are absolutely gorgeous!!! One of my granddaughter, Paige, and I are on a flower making binge. Later this week I hope to post on my blog some photos of our different flowers out of different materials.
    These are awesome, we haven't tried satin yet!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  6. Robyn those are too cool yah wish I could see them better but even so I am giving you two thumbs up

  7. Wow, Robyn, these flowers are gorgeous. You always do make beautiful flowers but these are my favorites so far. Just beautiful.

  8. Robyn I just love your flowers they are out of this world. They would be so pretty on gift boxes, cards and so many other things. Can't wait for your tutorial.

  9. A very "hot" idea! Great thinking and they're beautiful!
