Tuesday Tip – Loom Flowers

July 23, 2013

Hello everyone, it’s Cathy and I would like to share with you a simple and versatile flower that you can add to your projects. Loom flowers are created by winding a trim onto a loom. They are beautiful on their own and are just as amazing when accompanied with other embellishments. Whatever your style of scrapbooking is or theme you want to create, your choice of trim can assist you in achieving the look you are after.

To create your loom flower select a trim. For my sample, I chose a thin white ribbon.


To create the petals of your flower, secure your trim onto your loom. Wind your trim around the posts in a clockwise direction. Once, completed you will continue this all the way round your loom as shown.



To create the centre of your flower I have selected a contrasting colour. You can use the same colour if you wish.

Thread a blunt darning needle and insert from the bottom of your loom through the centre of your flower.


Thread your needle through the centre of a petal (the gap between a post) and pull the thread down. Again thread your needle through the centre of your flower and thread the needle down through the centre of the petal to the right of the one you just completed.


Repeat this around the entire loom and your will see a satin stitch centre. Thread all loose ends and tie off on the back. You can now release your flower from the loom.


You can add flowers or pretty centres to your loom flowers.



Here I have used a loom flower to add to a cluster in a layout.


Try making one. You will see the many possibilities this flower can bring to your projects.
