Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 3: Fab Flower Cuff

Hi Everyone!
Without further ado, here's what I created with some of the Beauty Bloom die cuts I received for the blog hop:

Besides the die cuts from Sizzix which included pieces of a Xotic Felt(TM) and fabric from Brenda Pinnick's own fabric line by Henry Glass and Co., I used an aluminum bracelet cuff blank, bias tape, thread and needle, hot glue and some beads all from my personal supplies.

I wrapped the cuff with the bias tape and glued the end:
Then, I took some of the felt pieces and gathered them in the center and at the points to give them dimension. I used a needle and thread and a few stitches, but you could pinch them together with your fingers and glue them. Then I stitched a couple of beads to the center of a fabric flower and stacked the parts together. I glued the stack to the center of the cuff. I made two smaller flowers in the same manner and glued one on each side of the main flower.

Here are more views of the cuff to show the smaller flowers.
