Oh Happy -Play- Day

WOW!!  I can't believe that it will be Christmas Eve tomorrow!!  I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and that you are looking forward to a Happy New Year!!  Now I'm sure that most scrapbookers out there are going to be getting some awesome scrappy goodies under the tree this year, so why not put them to good use this week and play along with our Fabulous Friday Challenge this week at Frosted Designs!!  This week's challenge is to use Cloth/Fabric on your layout or project.  

I have seen the adorable flowers created with old t-shirts and haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I just took one of the girl's and one of my old t-shirts and cut them about a half inch wide and at least 12 inches or longer, depending on how big you want your flower to be.  Then grab both ends and twist the fabric.  Once it is twisted, bring the two ends together and let the material "roll up" on itself.  Take the two ends and place it as the center of your flower, either on a Gluber, or a punched circle out of paper and use hot glue and start rolling your flower.  Once it is rolled and secured, you can add a button or brad, or whatever you like for the center.

You have until Noon on Thursday, December 29, to play along with us for the chance to win an awesome prize from our Sponsor!!
