I started off with with this tin
For the fabric flowers I followed this tutorial. If you are as lazy as me when it comes to fussy cutting you can try this instead of cutting neat circles using a template- simply folded your approximately square piece of fabric multiple times as shown in the pictures and chomp off the top: shown by the black line in the central image of the collage (do forgive the crumpled fabric). You will get some sort of a crude circle which still gives you a beautiful flower...the ones I made are proof (ie if you find mine beautiful :P)
These flowers were soooo easy to make, by far the easiest fabric flowers I've tried my hand at!I've used chenille sticks instead of floral stem. I found that chenille sticks are not able to take the weight of the flowers too well but they do give the flowers a nice wobbly effect. I hot glued the stems to the inside of the tin to keep the flowers in place.
