Tuesday Tips - Twill Flowers

Good Morning ... today I have a cute twill flower tutorial to share with you. This layout was published in the spring issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today and features one of my twill flowers.

(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper Jillibean Soup, White Corrugated Alphas, Paint from Making Memories, Scallop Punch Stampin Up, small sticker alphas from  Making Memories, Twine Jillibean Soup, Twill Jillibean Soup, Button Jillibean Soup, DMC Embroidery Floss, font Traveling Typewriter)

Supplies needed to make twill/ribbon flowers: 

  • Approximately 10" of twill

  • Button

  • Twine

  • Needle and thread

  • Thin strips of green cardstock

  • Pencil or Paint Brush


Run a basting stitch along the edge of your ribbon or twill.


Pull thread to create a ruffled look from your ribbon or twill.

Turn your flower over and stitch the ends together.

The hole in the center of the flower all depends on how tight your pull the basted thread and how long your piece of twill is.
Layer button over the center of the flower and top with twine. Flower06

To make dimensional curly accents for your flowers coil thin strips of green cardstock around a pencil or paint brush. Tuck under flowers and adhere with glue dots or your favorite adhesive. Think of all the different materials you can make flowers out of. The flower possibilities are endless.

Here is a close up look at a completed flower on my layout.


Thanks for stopping by today and happy scrapping :)
