My sparkle: How To: Rolled Fabric Flowers

My sparkle: How To: Rolled Fabric Flowers
So I am jumping on the bandwagon and loving all the rolled fabric flowers I've seen here and there. We decided to make some with the girls in our church youth group, but I couldn't find a great tutorial on how to make them so I played around and this is what I came up with.Enjoy! Start with about a 1" ripped strip of fabric (you can use any width...this was the width I liked best). The length and weight of your fabric will dictate the end diameter of your flower. Fold the strip in half and dot a little fabric glue on the end 1/2" or so. Roll the glued end a few times to get a nice tight center. Then, once you have a center you like, start twist/folding your fabric away from the center as you roll. It will start to look like this. Continue rolling until you have a flower that is sized the way you like, but make sure you leave at least a 1" or 2" tail (enough to cover flower bottom). Spread glue all over the bottom side of the flower. Then fold tail down to cover glue. Maybe.

I am very specific and picky about the color of mint I want, not too blue, not too green, not too dark, or not too light, more blue with a tint of green. I finally thought I found the color I was looking for(within my price range) and ordered two pairs of mint pants just to make sure I got the right color, but unfortunately one was a tad darker than I wanted(and too big), and the other one was too green for me. I've learned that in the pictures(in stores and in other blogs), the color always shows up more blue than it actually is.
