Heart Felt Flower Hairclip
felt – you can grab the cheapo sheets of craft felt at Walmart or Michaels or buy the felt by the yard at a fabric store – both will work.
hot glue – yep, these are no-sew!
Hairclips for the back
First up, cut out a bunch of hearts. Lifestyle Crafts sent me some heart die cuts for use with my Epic 6 machine and I knew it’d be perfect for this project. When I cut the same shape over and over and over, I like when I have a diecut to roll it through my cutter. When I cut one thing, I like using my Silhouette Cameo because you don’t need a specific cartridge or die cut for just one shape. So anyways, I loved using my Epic from Lifestyle Crafts and cranking out a pile of hearts.
NEEDED: For one flower clip you’ll need 5 larger hearts, 5 medium hearts, and one small heart, and then one extra heart for the back.

Cute! I didn’t know you could buy the hair clips in bulk at Sally’s…don’t know why I didn’t think to look there….thanks for sharing!
Great idea! The kids would enjoy making these with me!

These are so cute! I tried cutting felt with my Epic yesterday and couldn’t get it to work. What platform/cutting mat setup did you use? Thanks!
Wow.These are soo cute!

These could be used for lots of valentine’s day decorating. I am thinking pillows, napkin rings and on a wreath. And now I am off to check my felt stash. 🙂
Aw, those are so sweet! Off to make some. Thanks for the tutorial. 🙂

Whoooa. It’s like you read my mind! Today I was wondering if there was some way I could create flowers with hearts. And you did it! You amaze me, Mandy! 🙂

Tressa here from Dogwood Corner. Yes, the one who made these flowers on etsy. I think that it is just lovely that you included a link to my shop in your blog. I have had quite a few visits that link back to here. I am so grateful for the free advertising. And if there is anyone out there that is feeling crafty but who doesn’t want to go through all of this, you can order these in my shop for $1.00 a piece. Order the amount you want and the color you want.

I used your heart flowers to embellish a pillow. I love how they turned out. https://claimingourspace.blogspot.com/2012/02/valentine-pillow.html
I did it and it’s cute 🙂 thanks for the tutorial 🙂
These are lovely Mandy. May I put a link to your blog on our fundraising blog for The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles please? We have a tombola every year at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham UK and this year the theme is “hearts”. The money raised from the items people make for us goes to help keep The Guild Museum open and for us to educate and help quilters and young quilters with their craft all through the British Isles.
Jan – tombola organiser for 2014

you’re welcome to post a link back to my site – thanks!
Thanks Mandy. Here’s a link to the site. The link to your tutorial will be up there soon.
Used this cute idea as a craft with my nursing home residents. Used thick white glue for safety reasons and we turned them into pins. Super cute and easy – they loved making them and wearing them!
