Embellished Lacy Scrappy Flowers

It seems that winter just isn't going to go away for awhile. Yesterday, it rained, then turned to freezing rain and then snow. Today it was more snow and doesn't appear it's going to melt anytime soon.


But I'm lucky because I can sit tight at home and create in my scrapbook room and forget all about what's going on outside. I'm working on making some things for St Patricks Day... but for today I want to show how I made these flowers...

To start, I cut out a circle 2 inches in diameter, and also 4 - 2" of lace..
Hot glue it around the edge of the circle...


I took a piece of ribbon and basted on the edge...


Pulled it tight and sewed it in the middle to keep it together...


And then hot glued it to the main part of the flower..

Added some flowers that I made..
Directions are here...


For this flower, I added ribbon and a rolled flower...


This flower was also made with some fabric cut into different size circles with a button on top..

All very easy to make!

I'm linking to these parties....
