Doily Flowers

As you've probably noticed, I've been hooked on using doilies lately. I just love them. Below are a couple of cards that I made using doily flowers. Here's how to make them.

First, cut the inside out of a doily. Then fan fold it.



Add a couple of glue dots to adhere the ends and then add something, a sticker, a die cut or a large button to the center.



That's it. Then you can use them however you wish. Here are a couple of cards that I recently made.

This first one uses GCD Studios and Anna Griffin paper. I added a GCD epoxy sticker to the flower and a pretty Zva pearl flourish.






This next one uses some Crate and My Mind's Eye papers, Crate sticker and Basic Grey gems.




That's it for today. I have a long day, so I have to run! Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)
