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!

Scribble & Scrap Challenge #28

Time for another new challenge over at Scribble & Scrap and as always it super easy to join as its Anything Goes. Check out the Challenge Blog for all the up to date details on the prize and rules.

Here is my card I made using Gorjuss Ruby Stamp Set, First Edition Love Letters paper stack and flowers and things - Pink and Black


I coloured the image using copics and used the love letters papers for the background. I stamped the frame stamp onto the FE papers and hand cut it out to make a frame to stick over the main image, I stuck it down using glue gel to give it a bit of dimension. The sentiment is hand stamped and matted using nesties circle and scalloped circle dies. I added a length of ribbon from my stash down the side on top of some plain black card and lastly used the flowers from the set with the gem flowers in the centres.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you get chance to stop by the rest of the DT girls blogs for lots more inspiration.

Here is my Sous Chef card using Soultrain.




I coloured the image using copics. I used stickles in the stars on the hairband and the ones on the corner of the frame to add some glitz! the die is memory box cosmic border die, and I layered 2 ribbons from my stash and put them across the bottom of the card. I used paper blossoms and put sparkling rhinestones in the centres. The papers are from my stash and I also used plain purple bazzill cardstock. I made the corner piece myself with my trimmer and have left the card without a sentiment for now until I decide who will be the lucky recipient! lol

I coloured lillibet using copics. She is die cut using nesties cirlces and scalloped circles dies. I have also used some plain Bazzill cardstock from my stash for the matting. The backing papers both from the First Edition paper stack. I coloured in 6 small flowers from the flower pack using a copic pen and added rhinestones to the centres. I cut the bow and assembled it and laid a piece of matching paper across the rear of where the bow was going. Finally I added some pearls to the corners of the card.
