What's Up Wednesday with Jennifer Longenecker

With this being the last week of school for many people a couple of our designers are going to share a few teacher appreciation ideas. I love vintage looking things and wanted to do something with an embroidery hoop. This may not be very "vintage" but you get the idea.






For this project you will need an embroidery hoop (I chose one of the smaller hoops), canvas circle cut larger than the embroidery hoops, 3 paper circles, 3 AMM vintage flowers, chipboard letterers, alpha stickers, embroidery floss.




Step 1: Glue your AMM vintage flowers to the center of your pattern paper circles.




Step 2: Cut small slits in the paper around the vintage flowers.




Step 3: Glue the flowers to the canvas and pull up every other petal on the pattern paper circle you just cut.




Step 4: Add your sentiment, then place your canvas circle inside the embroidery hoop.




Step 5: Add stems and leaves to the vintage flowers using embroidery floss. Cut the edges of the canvas ....




... and you have a cute little gift for a special teacher.
