Gallery Idol 2011. The Top 20 from the Open Auditions were tasked with the theme of DIY embellishments. My mind went a little crazy on this one - I tend to over think! I went back to the tried and true flowers after fiddling around with numerous other things for a couple days :) These flowers have a new to me spin on them - ric rac! Here is my submission for Round 1.
great tutorial with pictures. The yellow flowers were easy peasy - hand stitch along the "peaks" of one edge of the ribbon, pull the thread to gather, secure with a few more stitches or hot glue. Here is a close-up of the blooms :)
Paper Crafts Connections blog. The grand prize winner at the end of Round 4 will receive - get this - a Paper Crafts CRUISE!!!!! How sweet would that be!
