Red flowers from the The best of State Gala


here is my shoes and bag before. Great accessories...


And now, even better...


The tutorial on the red flowers from The best of State gala....
First, i find those flowers at the store....I liked the buttons and thought it would look good with the shoes....
Got some red tulle...


Here is the flower....


I cut the middle part of the flower off....Then, i hot glued the whole flower back together...


I cut the tulle a little bigger than the flower high....


The i folded it and threaded my thread 


Gathered...


Until it did a full circle that i liked. Sew it together...


Hot glued it on the flower...


Brown felt and a brooch piece...


Hot glued...


Pretty...




Now for the bag...the length and the tassel was wrong...


I cut some of the chain off...the tassel off...


Perfect length...


I added a flower...

Have a great week-end!
THANK YOU for the Birthday wishes!
