10/23 Michelle's fabric roses tutorial

Here's a simple little tutorial on how to make fabric roses.
Cut a variety of different sized circles from a nylon based fabric
Chiffon, satin, tulle and organza work best.
You need to make sure that your fabric does not contain any cotton or it will burn and catch on fire. This is very important as it can be dangerous.

Use a small lit tea light candle and hold the edge of your fabric circle just above the flame until it starts to melt and continue to melt all the way around your petal.

Stack your finished petals from largest to smallest .

Stitch a button or bead in the middle and there you have it, a fabric rose all ready to stick on your layout or card.

Prompt 15: Making Mischief

Aubrey likes to empty things. She pulls all the clothes out of a newly folded basket of laundry. She takes every DVD out of the entertainment center. She dumps her toys out of her toybox and sits in it and squeals.

Does your little one get into trouble? Are they so curious about the world that they rip everything apart? Did they every get ahold of your markers and make you a mural? This prompt is all about the mischief that little ones make.

Your challenge is to create a layout or project featuring your little one making a little mischief
