Yesterday early morning I posted pictures of my new bins for my bathroom. I made flowers to decorate them using t-shirt scraps.
I cut out a rectangle and I used a hemmed piece to make it easier and to keep it from curling up.
I folded it in half and glued it together along the non-folded edge.
Then I cute strips about 1/4-3/8" deep along the folded egde. The strips were spaced apart at variable intervals.
When rolled up, I glued along the bottom edge as I rolled.
I squished it down a little bit so that the pedals would fold out towards the bottom.
I added a square of green underneath it and then trimmed it down to look like two leaves.
This is what the bottom looks like.
The next flower is the rose. I don't have step by step of it, but you'll get the idea.
Again, I folded a long strip in half. I cut half circles along the top in various sizes and depths.
When rolled up it looks like a rose. I folded the outside pedals down to make it look more authentic.
This is what it looks like standing up!
And then I glued them to the bins and I LOVE them :)
