Fabric Tape Flower Love!

Hi Love My Tape friends!  Tina here today with a layout that I created for CHA and with our August LMT Challenge!

I wanted to create a fast and simple layout that really showcases a super easy technique - creating custom flowers out of fabric tape.

I used the following fabric tapes for my flower:

Wild Flowers, Lily

To create the flower, use an extra large Gluber or a large glue dot or piece of adhesive.  Cut pieces of fabric tape approx. 2 1/2 - 3 inches long, keeping the adhesive backing attached.

After you cut your pieces (approx 20-30 strips - depending on how full you want your flower), began assembling the flower.

Remove approx 1/4 inch of the adhesive backing from the end of a piece of tape, fold the strip in half and adhere the tape to itself. 

Attach the piece to the Gluber or large glue dot.

Continue layering the strips of tape around the glue dot until satisfied with the shape of your flower.

Add a flower shaped sticker and button, with twine, to the tape flower and adhere to your project.  Easy peasy, huh?

Ready to hear about the August Challenge?  Here are the details:

1.  Create a layout or card that includes a flower (or two or three) made from lace, fabric, and/or washi tape.
2.  The challenge is open until August 29th
3.  A randomly chosen winner will win some LMT goodies.
4.  Link up your projects below.

Make sure and participate as I am looking for future Love My Tape Guest Designers.  Link up your Challenge projects here and share your other LMT projects on our Facebook page.

We can't wait to see your LMT flowers. 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
