No sew lace flower

I love lace, I love scrapbook flowers and I hate sewing. So here is a no sew lace flower tutorial. I can't take full credit because I did see something similar on a blog long ago (can't remember where) but I made mine a little fuller than hers.

You'll need a cardstock circle (rough cut mine about 2 inches), 18 inches or so of THIN lace (or sheer ribbon) or more if your circle is bigger... and a strong fast drying glue that dries clear. This will not work with thick/dense material. Also, the cheaper and rough (not soft and flat) thin lace works better (YEAH!).


STEP 1: Put glue on outer edge of circle. UPDATE: Or use a Cosmo Cricket Gluber (so much easier)
STEP 2: Pleat and fan (like a deck of cards) the first two folds and be sure to turn the starting edge under for a nice finish. Continue pleating and fanning around the circle and add a dab of glue in every pleat.
STEP 4: Put a big glob of glue in the middle and work your fold towards the center.
Step 5: Turn edge under and decorate middle with pearls, beads, a brad etc.
SPEP 6: Once dry, fluff lace.
That's it!
