LF Inspiration Week: Rolled Roses

Hello friends! The Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues today with a look at the Rolled Roses die! This die makes the cutest little flowers - especially when you cut them with felt!

I have had these wooden oval signs in my craft area for the longest time, and I decided that they would make the perfect signs for my daughters room. They will share a room next summer, so I wanted something that would match, but would be slightly different. The signs are wood, so I started by painting them with white paint for a local craft store. I used my computer to design the names, printed the designed, and traced the names onto the signs. To trace the names, I rub chalk onto the back of the printed paper, lay it onto the sign where I want the letters, and then trace over the names with a pencil. Tracing the names leaves a chalk outline on the sign that I then trace with a black paint marker. I'm terrible at painting or writing without a template, so this technique has worked well for me.

After I have the names painted onto the signs, I created the felt flowers. I made one large flower and two small flowers for each sign. I also cut out a bunch of leaves to add behind the flowers. For my flowers and leaves, I used Benzie felt, which is a much better quality than the cheap felt from the big box craft stores. To roll the flowers, I added a little bit of hot glue to the center of the flowers, and then rolled until I came to the end where I added another small bit of hot glue. They turned out so cute!

I also really like the stitched detail that is included in the leaves. And I really like that the stitched detail came through on the felt, too! Here's a closer look at the flowers on the signs:
