Flowers Made From Bounce Sheets

Here is a simple, fun idea to make flowers for all your projects while you upcycle at the same time!  You will need:

  • A Bounce Fabric Softener Sheet that has already been used in the dryer
  • A pair of scissors
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (your choice of color)
  • Ranger Stickles (your choice of color)
  • Adhesive (glue dots, Mono Adhesive or Fabri-Tac)
  • A button, brad, jewels, pearls or a pebble for the center of flower

Let's begin:

Cut 3 circles from the used Bounce Fabric Softener Sheet.  I usually cut one circle 2-1/2 inches, one circle 1-1/2 inches, and one circle 1 inch.  They don't have to be perfect as it looks better if they aren't.

Place the three circles on a craft mat, or inside of a box, and spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist until thoroughly saturated.

 Let dry naturally or with a heat tool to speed up the drying process.

Once misted circles are dry, take your bottle of Stickles and apply around the outer edge of each misted circle.

Let these dry naturally because a heat tool doesn't dry Stickles.

Once the misted circles are completely dry and the Stickles around the outer edges are dry, apply a dab of glue in the middle of the 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch circle and layer your circles.

Place a brad, button, jewel or pebble on the top center of the flower.

Voila!  You now have a flower to embellish your favorite project!
