Paper Doileys as Flowers

In my layout "Sweet Girl", I've used some paper doileys to create a flower. It's a very simple technique and details in paper doileys actually creates very beautiful flowers.

To create your own paper doileys flowers, simply follow the steps below.

1. Use a piece of paper doiley and paint or ink your choice of colours on it. In my flower, I've used some red pigment inks to ink the first layer and then lightly dab on some black pigment ink to give some depths to it.

2. Cut your paper doiley into halves and fold it in a way that you're creating pleats to it.

3. Then join both halves and voila! You have your flower! If you would liked to have a full flower, you can add more paper doileys to it until you get a full circle. In my flower, I've used some mini brads to hold the pleats in place.
