DIY 3d woolies/felties

I absolutely love the felties, and woolies that paper manufacturers sell, but each package has 4-6 and is $4.99.  I try not to hoard my woolies, but I usually do because of how much I spent on them.  So I thought to myself the other day as I was browsing the aisles of my local craft store, what if I just tried to make them?  So I bought some felt, and some felt glue, all of the other items I already had at home.  The felt glue was around $3-4 and the felt was $0.29 a sheet (super cheap). 

Supplies needed:
Felt
Felt glue
Dies that can cut through felt, I used Spellbinders dies
3d foam tape/dimmensionals
clear card stock
embellishments like buttons, and sticker pearls

Here is a close up of what I made

So cute!

My local craft store has a limited amount of colors, so I plan on buying some felt online, so I have better color combinations.

Some of these I cut out by hand, and the hearts and the one that has a button on it, I use my dies to cut out.
