Default Need tips, PLEASE!

i'm new to bow-making & i still have a long way to go! my bows look decent enough but the biggest problem i have is attaching them to the barrette/clip so they look nice. i use my handy-dandy scissors to cut the felt backs for my ribbon flowers & it looks so messy when i'm done. tried to save some money but is it worth getting something to cut the circles? any suggestions & recommendations will be apprecitaed

i've started using velvet flowers that sewsdiane sells in group buys . . . this buy just has leopard ones but some of her past buys have had various solid colors.

if you go down to "pics of appliques" . . . it's #1 & #2. http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/group...8-15-11-a.html

i love these cause it also acts like the gripper on the clip if you put the fuzzy side inside the clip.

I sell felt circles for .04 each.. I dont have a thread up right now as I just moved but I filled lots of orders before the move and am about to open up again for more orders! They are great for the back of flowers and and 25 for $1 its just not worth the time ( I put my hubby to work lol) PM me if you are interested (anyone!) I will probably open it up the middle of next week but can take a couple of orders!

I make my own circles, it just takes practice. Try finding a quarter or something of that nture, tracing it then cutting the felt out.

A die cutting machine is very nice, but until you know for certain the direction your business is going to take I wouldn't recommend investing in one. It is likely that you will find some nitch that you are amazing at and it might not be what you think.

My greatest investment was a great pair of sharp scissors and a sharpener for them. Crafting is many times better with these! Buying the felt circles isn't a bad idea either, but I still say invest in some great scissors!

Best of luck to you!!
