Alacraft - Felt inspired

Hi everyone, 
Today I will be featuring some awesome products
 from Alacraft. I received an email recently, letting me
 know that Alacraft are now doing a $25 monthly giveaway! 
All you need to do, is pop your email address in at this link
and you're in the draw! They have a great range of laces,
 flowers and ribbons and scrapbooking stickers and papers.

During this month in June, I will be featuring some of the awesome 
products on my blog, products which are 
available from Alacraft.

Today’s my featured product is Felt

Felt is such a fabulous product to work and create with. 
Many years ago in my quilting days, I would use felt to 
create heart shapes and flowers to add to the many projects I created. 
They also look fabulous on bags and cushions too.  
Alacraft do have a great range of colours of felts to choose from
 and they come in A4 size sheets. 
The best thing about felt is that once you cut it, 
the edges never frail away.

I created here today several items with felt – my first item 
is a felt flower 
with felt leaves using Tim Holtz Tattered Floral 
& Tattered Leaves Die cuts.   

Using red and white felt for the flower and Green felt for the leaves. 
Now if you don’t have a flower diecut you can draw a flower
 shape on the felt and out it with your scissors.
In the center of each flower is a
 Mini flowers with diamonte centers
which is also available from Alacraft.

I glued all the pieces on top of each other. 
This flower would look fabulous on a card, or maybe 
on a scrapbook page. Also, you could put a pin behind the flower 
and use it as a brooch. Don’t you think it would be lovely 
on a hair clip or headband??  The possibilities are endless.

Next is Christmas Ornament created with the 
red and white Felt
Christmas is only around the corner, these would 
make great gift tags or hanging felt ornaments for 
your Christmas tree.

I cut the felt flower pieces with the Spellbinders diecut Christmas
 ornaments and Tattered flower diecut. I then glued the felt 
together with craft glue and then on to red card stock, 
tied a ribbon bow and hoop with 
the satin Ribbon which are all available from Alacraft.

Here is also a very quick card also using a diecut to cut the 
bird from red felt and then I cut some leaves 
and added a Mini flower with diamonte center
which is also available from Alacraft.
Well, that’s all for today, and I hope
 I have inspired you to 
create something with Felt
 for your next project.

You are such a clever crafter...your talent is versatile too! Your vintage LOs are so amazing and yet you can rock a trendy felt card too. Beautiful!
