JUST FOR FUN - Consultant Challenge, ASCC2-AUG2011

After a summer break, the JUST FOR FUN - Consultant Challenges are back!!!  I had to miss the last challenge because of my exam schedule.  I couldn't resist taking part in this one.  In the A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog, one of the new and exciting products is F-E-L-T.  It is absolutely delicious!!  They come in 10 different colors:  vanilla, french roast, cherry, fern, sage, slate, sky, bubblegum, shell, buttercup.

The challenge this month was to create an embellishment or project using the new felt.  Here's a video of Julie Ebersole's Fringed Felt Flower:

And here are the pictures of her fabulous project:

I made a felt flower hair rubber band (but what I noticed afterwards is that the band is actually big enough where you could wear it as a bracelet!!). 

I used the bubblegum felt.  First, I hand cut 6 large petals and 6 smaller petals.  Then, I used a hot glue gun to "pinch" the base of each petal.  Once I had all of the petals pinched, I took a 1 inch circle piece of felt and glued the large petals in place.  Then, I took the small petals and glued them on top of the large petals.  The centerpiece is an a|s French Roast button.  Finally, I glued the flower to a hair rubber band.  I hope you liked these projects.  

If you are interested in any of these products or would like to see the new A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog, email me at bjlee717 "at" comcast "dot" net.
