Curtain Band with Foam Flowers

Hi guys this is DT member Divya here with a new inspiration made with the newly launched ” Bloom Foam” sheets specially for flower making.

It is a set of 4 sheets in one pack. This amazing thin foam sheet helps us to make and shape beautiful flowers. In today’s blog I have shown you how to make a curtain band with this bloom foam sheet.

These are the amazing Ivory color ” Bloom Foam ” sheets. 

Let’s start with the project by cutting a thin strip of this sheet from which we will cut out parts of the flowers. I am using my Little Birdie Die Cut machine here to cut the flower shapes.

I have  cut 3 differently sized flowers, 2 big flowers, 3 medium flowers, 4 small flowers and 2 differently sized leaves.       here from which I have cut bigger flowers – 2 pieces , medium size – 3 pieces and small size –  4 pieces and two different size leaves.

Then I coloured the center of the flowers with Chrome Yellow archival ink, by dabbing the color in the center of each flower using a muslin cloth or sponge dabber. On top of the Chrome Yellow I used Vivid Green archival ink to add a greenish shade to it.

 

Next, I added Golden Color Splash on the edges of the flowers to make them shiny. For the leaves, I used Chrome Yellow, Vivid Green and Olive Green archival ink.

With the help of a hair straightener I heated the flowers a little bit and gave them a nice curved shape using round headed embossing tools . You can also use a heat gun or an iron to get the same result.

I used silicon glue to stick the flowers and the pollen.

Our flowers are ready. Shown below are the materials required for making a band. 

For making the band I have taken a piece of lace. The length is according to the thickness of my curtain when held together . Now take 2 plastic ovals and tie one to both ends of the lace. Then take 3 round disk magnets and stick them to one of the ovals and the other 3 to the other oval. After that take a satin ribbon of any color and cover the plastic ovals as shown in the picture.

The magnets will get attracted when they overlap. Attach the flowers using a glue gun.

.

 

Attach the flowers on one oval.

When you will close the band it will look something like this.

When you attach it to your curtain it will look like this. I hope you like this project and try it too.
