Flower Doily Tutorial

I have seen doily flowers made from fabric and paper lace strips.
Since, I don’t have either of those items. I decided to make my own with the regular paper doilies. As you know there are many of the lace paper doilies in a pack so you can make lots of them super cheap!

First, take any size doily you want. You can spray them with tattered angels mist or leave plain, like I did for the example here:


Secondly, you cut down the middle and cut the entire center out.


Next, you fold back and forth till you get to the end and glue it together.


Finally, add another flower with a brad in the center and your doily flower is done.


Here is an example of them on a layout.



Have fun!

  3. I was wondering if the doily's are acid free? I see so many people useing things on their pages that I would consider not acid free.
