How did I do that .. Lace flower by Rachael

Making your own flowers to adorn your pages and altered projects is so satisfying and there are so many different ones you can create. I have made a flower using a length of the lace from the limited edition kit.

You will need...

Start threading the embroidery thread through the holes that are along the bottom of the lace.

Keep threading until you think you have enough to form a circle.

I have added the gorgeous brooch from the Limited Edition kit to the centre of my flower but you could easily add a button, some bling or just simply layer up some paper circles.
