Default Felt Flowers?

I've been working on these felt flowers this weekend, and I LOVE them, I can't stop making them!

I was thinking of offering Kits to make these, to include the precut and sorted felt circles, and instructions on how to assemble.

These are SUPER easy, the cutting process is just a pain.

Please let me know if you might be interested. My Hubby is unemployed, so we are trying to see if there is something he can do while he is home to make some $$$ until he finds a gig.

Not sure yet about pricing, I'm thinking it will probably be about $.75 per flower kit.

If you wouldn't be interested, can you please mark vote anyway... I just don't want to waste our time with this if it's a flop...

My feelings won't be hurt, and no one will know what you vote unless you post something too.

Thanks :-)

I think they are very cute! Are you using wool or craft felt for them?
Hope your hubby finds a new job soon.

I put that I wouldn't be interested only because I could make the kits myself since I have a Sizzix. But I think if your husband was able to make the flowers then I would totally be interested.

Thanks for the input... maybe I will set him to assembling the flowers as well...

Once he's mastered the sizzix :-)

Opinion question... how would these (adorable) flowers look if the middle were squished flat? I'm thinking about setting a snap all the way through it, which would flatten the center.

Are you making an interchangeable something?

Might be better to set a snap on a circle of felt to glue underneath?

I was going to "mount" these on another felt circle before adding to a clip anyway....

Adding more felt underneath is a really good idea. I was thinking about a snap through the whole thing. Maybe this isn't the best flower for that?
