This colour combo sure is bright and happy - thanks Ruby2Shoes for putting this together!
I have gone for loads of white space on this card, because I wanted the focal point to be around the flower.
This is the first time I have tried making a Japanese origami flower, and the fabric I chose was slippery and silky, but I'm really happy with how it turned out - especiall for the first one! I used a little bit of twine from The Twinery to attach my button, and the seam binding is coloured using tumbled glass and broken china distress inks.
The card base and tags are made from Kaisercraft Sublime paper, and white cardstock, with the greeting from Darkroom Door set 'all occasions'. I used a black artlinepen to 'draw' a sewing line around the edge if the white cardstock, as i didn't want the added texture effect of stitching with a machine.

** EDITED TO ADD: I have had a request on how to make the flower, or where to find instructions. There are many instructions already available on the internet. If you search for Kanzashi fabric flower tutorial, or something similar, I'm sure you will find a lot of responses that will help you on your way. You may even find some you tube videos on them as well. I did not follow any one tutorial which is why I did not post a link to anywhere **
