Tip for making Fringed Flowers

December Greetings! Are we all scurrying around yet?! I know I am! But, seriously, I love this time of year. I love the music. I love the smells. The Christmas trees and lights. The family and group gatherings. And, of course, I do love my Jesus for giving me a reason to really celebrate the season!

So, what better time to share a tip for creating a fun fringed flower that can be used for so much more.

Fringed flowers can be created with special tools like this fringer from Lake City Crafts. If you own a die cut machine, Quilled Creations has some handy dies for making fringed flowers. But if your funds are all tied up right now in buying for friends and family - well, here's a way to create your own (until you can buy the cool tools! lol).

Step 1: Gather a ruler (I like my wooden ruler with a metal edge), fine scissors, your paper of choice, and cheap sticky dots.

Step 2: Attach your paper to the ruler using the sticky dots. (I only used one on each end of the paper and one in the middle.)

Step 3: Using the marks on the ruler, snip, snip, snip away!
