Fabric Flower Name Tags

Now that Founder's Day is over I finally have the time to show you how to make the flower name tags.

I did a fabric flower tutorial with a few different options, but decided to keep these simple (since I was making 300)!

I started by cutting a flower shape out of cardstock. I used this as my template for the fabric. For each name tag you will need 5 flower cut outs.

Set one aside and fold the other four in quarters and securing it with a dab of glue.



Then glue each of the quarters onto the fifth cut out.


These petals stand up a little more than some of the others because it was a thicker canvas material, but I also made flowers with printed cotton fabric.

I used ribbon to secure the pin on the back and provide a place for your name. My ribbons strips we about 10" long.

Secure the ribbon with a bit of hot glue in the middle of the flower.


Then glue down the pin. I found these at Michael's, the pack was about $3 for 60 of them.

Once the hot glue is dry, loop the upper part of the ribbon back under the pin. This will help secure the pin on the flower.

And add a dab of glue to keep it in place.

Lastly, I added a rhinestone in the center. Here is the finished product:

We used small white labels for the name part, this way the girls could remove the tag and reuse the flower for something else!

Much better than a label name tag, I love how they turned out!
