Scribble & Scrap - paper Doily Flowers Tutorial

Morning all! here with a tutorial for making doily flowers for the Scribble & Scrap blog! Hope you like it.

Here is what you will need Curiosity Corner Doilies, Scissors, glue's of your choice and Dazzling Rhinestones

Start by cutting into the centre of the doilies as in the following 2 picture. On the 3rd doily you will need to cut in one place from the centre to the outside edge as this will make the folding easier.

Start to fold the doily with the smallest central hole and glue as in the next 2 pictures.

 Next fold the next sized hole doily again as in the above pictures and finally the one that has been cut down the width as in the picture below.

Now you're going to glue the 3 layers together, I used the glue gel for this as it is stronger than the photo glue used for the pleats.  With the 3rd layer (pic above) you may need to cut it to the desired length once you have the layer as frilly as you would like it.Once glued it should now look like this

Next I punched out a circle from plain white card, you coul deasily just cut a circle if you don't have a punch, you're not going to see it on the finished flower so doesnt need to be perfect.

 Add some glue gel to the underneath of the flower and then stick down onto the circle. Now you're ready to glue on you're dazzler for the centre or whatever embellishment you chose to use. Add a blobb of glue gel to the back of the dazzler and press down into the centre of the flower.

So here is the finished flower

You could also tint the edges of the doily with distress inks before you start the folding so they will co-ordinate with the project you are using them for.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial and would love to see your flowers!
