Dahlia Bowls
When I first saw the new Grand Dahlia die templates from Spellbinders, I knew that they could be used in so many different ways, especially for home décor projects.  So far, I've been able to make large hanging ornaments, a decorative pillow, and now these cute Dahlia Bowls made from glue, water, felt, and paper. The Grand Dahlias are in the line of Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities® dies.
 



Supplies:
Anna Griffin Patterned Paper (Carmen Collection - Green Quatrefoil)
Beacon Adhesives (Fabri-Tac Adhesive)
Felt (Pink, Blue, Red)
Elmer's Glue All (Liquid Glue)
Water
Pop Can
Ribbon or Elastic


ORANGE
12 x 12 Layout
My next project is a layout, where I cut all the die templates at once, then inverted every second cut to take advantage of the double-sided paper, and to create a funky Grand Dahlia.  I only made one, and decided to cut it into two pieces, so that it covered each side of the layout.


Supplies:
Quick Quotes Patterned Paper (Yellow)
BoBunny Cardstock (Blue Polka Dot)
Distress Ink (Spiced Marmalade)
Glue Arts Perma Tac Adhesive
Photo: Vine Images (Julie Johnson)


Here is the new die set I introduced:



MSRP: $49.99

PRODUCT SIZES:
1. 4 ¾"
2. 5 ½"
3. 6 ½"
4. 7 ½"
5. 8 ¼"

Dahlia Bowl Tutorial
I am so glad that I get to showcase this die set, Spellbinders Grand Dahlias, because of its size and the ability to make so many projects.  See the video below on how to make Dahlia Bowls from felt.



Thanks for watching!

This reminds me of some Barbie-sized Easter Bonnets I made using this technique with cotton fabric, a plastic mold, and circles cut with pinking shears. The dies certainly make this much faster. Love the polka dots, too!
