How to Create Fabric Flowers for a Scrapbook Border

Gather a bouquet of blooms for your scrapbook layout by creating a variety of handmade fabric flower accents and combining them into a single, striking border. Two types of handmade fabric flowers work beautifully for this type of border: gathered flowers and rolled flowers. You can make these flowers from any fabric of your choice, though sturdier fabric, such as felt, works best for the gathered flowers.
