MFT Rolled Rose Die-namic Video Tutorial

There's one thing I *don't* stock up on in my crafty stash.... and that's pre-fab flowers. I'm always worried I won't have the right color, what paper will it match with, will it be too big? Too small? So, instead, I just don't buy them....

The great news, MFT's Die-namics make it easy to create custom embellishments to match whatever paper you're using. And with the wide assortment of shapes that MFT is always creating... there are TONS of possibilities.

You've seen me use this Rolled Rose Die-namic before on a pillow and on a lampshade, but I know that so many of us are visual learners.... so when I put this little rose together I videotaped the process so you can see how easy it is to make a custom little bloom.

I've used felt for mine. I recommend a wool blend felt, versus the acrylic stuff. The acrylic is cheaper, but it leaves those icky stringy hairs when you cut. The wool felt cuts up like buttah! Conveniently MFT sells felt too. Nice right? I've cut mine with my Cuttlebug, but really these dies will work in any die-cutting machine. MFT has cutting stack information here. If you're not having good luck with your dies, try adding a shim to your stack (that's an extra scrap piece of cardstock) to increase the pressure between your die and your cutting material.

My little video tutorial on how to make these pretty blooms is embedded below, or you can find it on YouTube HERE. Drop me a note with any questions, I'm always happy to help!
