- Fabric Flower Petals (Hand Cut or Die Cut)

Die cut or hand cut flower petals from fabric. Use six to nine petals for full flowers. Vary the sizes and shapes for fullness.
Cut Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® Peel & Stick Sheets to size, to fit between flower petal layers. Peel paper liner from adhesive and press onto petal.
Continue to add adhesive between petal layers until you have built up six to nine layers.
Next, press fabric into a ball and roll between hands. This will ruffle the edges of the cut fabric.
Open flower and next start to roll the top petal layer into a ball in the center of the flower. Continue to add each layer to the ball by pulling the petals up and pressing into a ball in the center of the flower.
Repeat for all layers until the entire flower is rolled into a ball. Press firmly down on the top of flower to ruffle petals.
Carefully open the flower to reveal the center.
Squeeze Aleene's® Fabric Fusion® permanent fabric adhesive into the center of the flower to create a puddle of glue.
Pour seed beads into glue.
Gently tap the seed beads into glue with finger.
Shake off excess beads into a container.
Let flower dry overnight. Can be used on washable wearables or other crafting projects after glue has cured according to bottle instructions.
