Here I used patterned papers and created it into rose-like flowers.
This flower has been made from an egg box! It’s so easy, try it! Here you are the link: http://www.edenscrap.com/article-tutoriel-oeufs-avec-boite-a-oeufs-tutorial-flowers-with-eggs-box-43558014.html
I gathered a bit of crochet lace into a ruffle circle and added a paper rose to the center. More deets on the how-to are at my blog.
I made flowers by layering die cuts, buttons, brads, and fabric. For the fabric flowers I used pieces of lace, stitching a running stitch through the end and gathering together loosely. Once gathered, I wound the lace around about three times to make a layered flower. It helped to stitch the lace together in the back 2-3 stitches per layer.
I made my flower with pieces of white silk. It was cut into 6 uneven circles 2 of each size, so that each set were each a little smaller than the last. Then using a candle lighter the edges were melted so they curled up. Be careful!! I kept burning myself, so my pyro friend had to finish that step for me! Then I misted each set of circles a different color, layered them, and used a decorative brad to connect them together. I topped that with an asterisk from one of the alpha sets I used in my title.
Layouts for the challenge are due Sunday, April 11th, by midnight Eastern. Next Challenge will be posted on the following Monday.
