Cutting into the felt

I'm excited that I finally have time again to play along with the Papertrey Blog Hop! This is the second time I've participated -- the first with my own not-much-to-see-yet blog. Papertrey's challenge this month is to use some of that felt we've been hoarding. (Somehow they know we've been hoarding it -- or at least afraid to use it.) I used mine to build an embellishment because 1) that's why I bought the felt in the first place and 2) it gave me a chance to use some of my great new stuff! I especially had fun with the dies. And how perfect is that fillable frames set?! LOVE IT!
