Doily flower

I bring to you a new flower tutorial. I went to a class at a local craft store a couple of weeks ago and made this really cool wreath with lots of hand made flowers on it.

Can you see the yellow ones? Those were made from doilies and I'm going to show you how to do it. It is really simple.

Start with a paper doilie, an inkpad, a button, glue dots and a small rubberband.
crumple it up in your hand into a little ball and then smooth it back out.

blot ink onto the doilie using a sponge or an ink dauber. Do not rub it because the edges of the doily are delicate and will tear.
Turn it upside down. Put a glue dot in the middle and place a button there. The color of the button does not matter because it won't show. This is your chance to use your ugly buttons!
Pinch the doily around the button and wrap the rubber band around it to hold it.

Then spread your flower out gently and use on your product. So easy!
