Glubers~have you tried these!!

The brain child of Cosmo Cricket ~ a big giant pad of sticky glue.  Wish I had thought of it!   It will hold material , trim or ribbon and makes beautiful flowers.  It is not just for scrapbooking ~ necklaces, attach them to handbags, totes, aprons and so much more.  I'm going to take  you through the process of making a flower, out of material, using Glubers!!  Here we go~

I used a strip of fabric 44" long and 2" wide.  I folded the fabric in half and sewed a loose stitch all the way down the fabric.

I then gathered it up by pulling the stitching.  Gather it all the way down.

When that is done start wrapping the fabric around the large {3"} Gluber.  The stitching to the inside and ruffle to the outside.  Keep going around the circle until the Gluber is covered by the fabric.  Fold in the end of the fabric into the center of the flower.  Sew on your center {button etc.}

Take the backing of the Gluber off and stick the flower on a piece of felt or material.  Cut around the Gluber to make the back piece a circle.  You are ready to sew them or pin them to your apron, tote ~ what ever you like. 

Finished flowers and this is where I used them~

I have been making my granddaughters head bands ~ can't seem to stop!! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!  By: Connie Mercer/Street Writer

Love those flower details! Just bought my first pack of Glubers the other day. I've been making fabric flowers the hard way until now.
