Sending You Warm Thoughts

Sometimes a warm thought for someone goes a long way, whether they are struggling through something difficult in life or just to let them know you're thinking about them.  I created this card with a burst of cheer as the focal point and created a large doily flower using Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

How to make the Cheery Lynn Designs doily flower.  (I used French Pastry Doily for the outside of the flower and Chasing Rainbows for the inside of the flower.)

Step 1:  

Using your die cut machine, cut three Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doilies and one Chasing Rainbows Doilies.  Also, punch out one 1 inch circle for the base of the flower.

Step 2:

Cut each of the three French Pastry Doily in quarters.

Step 3:

Fold each quarter in half.

Step 4:

Start to glue the doily quarters onto the 1 inch circle overlapping each quarter doily as you turn the circle clockwise.

When you are finished attaching the doily quarters onto the 1 inch circle it should look like this:

Step 5:

Cut a circle in the center of the Cheery Lynn Designs Chasing Rainbows.  Mist the doily lightly with a fine mist of water using a spray mister so the doily gets limp and pliable.

Step 6:

Carefully begin to fold and gather the doily toward the center.

Step 7:

Attach the gathered Chasing Rainbows Doily to the center of the French Pastry Doily flower with hot glue.

Step 8:

Attach your favorite flower center to the middle of the doily flower with hot glue.

Step 9:

Using a small wooden dowel or the end of a small paint brush, fluff the center of each quartered French Pastry Doily petal to give your doily flower dimension.

Step 10:
