I would love to go in on some with ya!! Are you thinking buy?

I did see quite a bit of stuff on etsy that was really pretty. I love the newer style flowers the scrapbooking cos are putting out now and did see a good supplier for those (and she checked numbers last night) so that's promising. But never checked into the actual lrger size rosettes yet. Would love to get those!

So I may get the tut Geri put up for reference.. the first one on etsy. I knew there were similarities with that blog tut but wasn't sure about getting the center right.

Yeah, I was thinking of doing a GB if the samples came back looking good. I was going to get some 3.5" samples, once those come in I'll let you know if I'm going to order them!

I had two flower girls request I make the mesh flowers out of the fabric from their dresses (hard to match colors) so I took apart a mini-mesh flower (the size I needed). I would have to count again but I think there were 6 flowers in the design of the one in that tut for the felt flower, plus six mesh ones. You put a satin and mesh together and folded in four. The center was the same thing but after folding in two it looks like it was rolled from there into a cone, hope that makes sense. Im going to try my best to make these for them but don't have coordinating mesh of course (one is a dark sage green and one is a dark-ish salmon).

Might have to run to Michael's this weekend and see if the template thingy would work

I think I have the puff down then. I'm going to give it a whirl this weekend.
My only issue is that it's tough to get a good scallop on them unless you're die cutting like they do in a factory. But then again you still probably end up with a better product if you repro the same exact scallop shape!
