Altered Flower Belt *Epiphany Crafts*
Hello friends, Grace here to share with you my take on the “scallop” theme that Epiphany Crafts had over at their blog.
One of my favorite things about EC products is how versatile it is. One day I can use them to add embellishment to my cards or scrapbook pages and sometimes I venture out of my papercraft supplies and use them for other crafty endeavors such as this altered flower belt.
It was so easy to turn a simple Goodwill belt find from drab to fab by adding some homemade fabric flowers and finishing them off with metal and vintage charms from Epiphany Crafts.
Look at my beautiful model. Doesn’t the flower belt just add that special something to her outfit?

1. Use a thicker fabric like canvas to use as a base for your fabric flowers. Use a 2” circle as a marker and trace the shape on the canvas fabric. Cut out using pinking shears or fabric scissors.
2. Cut out 4 2 ½” circles from a fabric. Fold in quarters and cut out the top of the triangles into a heart shape. This will create the scallop edge of the flowers. Repeat this step using a 1 ¾” circle.
3. Repeat step 2 for as many flowers as you would like your belt to have. Adhere all the pieces together, layering the smaller scallop circles over the larger ones and set aside to dry.
4. Pick some pattern papers that would coordinate with your fabric flowers. Punch three out using the oval tool and bubble caps and two from the round 14 tool.
5. Adhere the bubble stickers on the centers of the vintage and metal charms. Adhere them to the center of the flowers using the glue gun. Adhere the finished flowers on the belt, centering them on the back of the buckle if desired.
