You may remember my tutorial on making felt flower rings. Well I have been busy crafting a whole group of them to give to friends as gifts. My friend Shelley appreciates thoughtful wrapping so I decided to get creative.
I found some gorgeous turquoise velvet ribbon and thick cream wool, on spools at Anthropologie. I knew I wanted to use them for something special.
I took a circle of card stock and began adding a strand of cream and a strand of taupe yarn, anchored with a glue gun. I build the nest up with circles of yarn, continuing to glue, and finally added a few strands in the center for my eggs. The eggs are from a collection including store bought and hand felted. Once I added the eggs I finished up the nest by building up yarn around the eggs.
I took three of the felt rings that I thought Shelley would like and added them to some thick kraft paper to fit in the box. I made an x-acto knife cut, to fit them into the paper. I used that same paper to make a tag and added a grommet to finish off the tag.
Okay ... one present finished. I better get cracking :)
