Here is another idea for using fabric. At first when I created my fabric flowers, I thought I was going to use several on the cover of my December Daily, but felt it was a bit overwhelming for the size of the album I was working with.
I started playing around with the idea of making fabric swirls. All I did was cut a long strip (total length will determine how large the swirl will be), about a half to an inch in width, and started to twist it and coil. As I coiled the fabric, periodically I added a bit of glue (I used the 3 in 1 glue again for this) to keep the shape together. When done, check it over to see if you need to add a bit more glue in any place.
Here is a view of the four that I made using different fabrics. You can see each one is unique. It doesn't matter if they are not perfect - you can see that mine
are not - personally, I think it adds to the handcrafted look.
Your fabric swirls are ready to use as embellishments on a page or album cover, or to create into something unique. Play around with the fabric you have in your stash to see what you can create!
