• Felt and Watercolor Notecards

    By Laura Bray

    Make a stack of these unique felt and watercolor notecards and you’ll always have something beautiful on hand to send to the people you love.

    Supplies:

    • 9″ x 12″ craft cuts of Kunin Classicfelt™: Yellow, Gold, Apple Green
    • 12” x 18” craft cuts of Kunin Premiumfelt™: Lagoon, Candy Pink
    • Flower shaped die and die cutting machine
    • Watercolor paper
    • Watercolor paint and brushes
    • Craft glue

    Instructions:

    1. Using a die cut machine and flower dies cut flower shapes from felt. No dies? That’s okay! Just cut your own flowers freehand! You can find a tutorial for handmaking felt flowers here.


    2. Cut watercolor paper to the size of greeting card you want to send.

    3. Arrange the felt flower shapes on the watercolor paper until you find an arrangement you like. Do not glue them down! Once you have an arrangement you like, lightly sketch leaves around the flowers. Remove the flowers from the watercolor paper. TIP: If you don’t think you’ll remember the placement of the flowers, take a photo to reference later.


    4. Using watercolors or other medium of your choice (acrylics or markers work too!), color in the leaves you drew. I also added a few random splashes of watercolor to the paper for an artistic look.


    5. Allow the watercolor paint to dry completely, then glue the flowers in place.

    You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® ClassicfeltKunin® Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
