Flower and Feather Barette

I haven't posted in awhile...the end of the school year has been busy! This is a project I did about a month ago and am just getting around to putting up. Sorry there are no pics of the process. You can find instructions all over pintrest on how to make these. One I found called for cutting out flower shapes by hand. I just used one of my dies and some leftover fabric. I cut 7 of the flower shapes a rectangle and a black felt circle. Simply fold the flowers in half and glue (I used hot glue)to the circle so you have 4 glued to the base. Do the same with the other 3 to form the 2nd tier. Roll the rectangle into a tube shape and glue into the center. I attached the feathers to the bottom of the felt flower and glued the whole thing to a tension barrette. One of the ones that you need to squeeze the sides to pop open. It was pretty easy.
