Loom Flowers

Loom flowers are a quick and easy method of creating a dimensional fabric flower. You could use a variety of different textiles from wool and ribbon to embroidery thread so have fun with this.

You can buy commercial flower looms, however all you need to get started is the lid from an icecream container and our template. Right click the link and save, then print. It should print at around 5.5cm wide which is a good size for adding to an ATC.

Once you have your template ready, follow the steps below. You can click any of the images to see them larger.

Now that you've created a beautiful loom flower, attach it to your ATC base and embellish as you like.

For some further instructions and inspirations check out: Small Looms and Flower Looms
