ViNtAgE PaPeR PaTtErNs

Vintage Paper Pattern Ruffles and Flowers

I scored on  some great Vintage Patterns.
Some are no where good enough for re-sale
So those are the ones I'm using to make
my Paper ruffles and flowers.
The Paper is aged to perfection!
It is in My Etsy Shop $13

The delicately Ruffled Patterns will
Give your Art such a sense of fragile femininity

I started by picking some pretty  
vintage millinery flowers from my collection
And I sure do love these with the rhinestone centers.
When I purchased them they were in
much need state of a good hot steam to open up the petals.
And it worked they really look charming.

So I am going to back each one with a pattern
paper flower. Start with a circle, and cut it out
with your fun scissors.
I just pick something around the Studio
for my Template.

I have my trusty glue gun on and ready
for action. I just kinda pinched the paper
at the back add a dab a glue to the back of
your Flower and There you have it a Darling
Vintage Embellishment!

I really think these embellishments are
just what I needed to complete my Posy

Well I think I've had enough of a Break blogging, I better get back 
to work. I want to get a few projects completed for the Shop.
I Will Post This Posy To Share when I am Finished
Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial.

Hi Diane,
I wondered what "crafter's" did with old patterns. Thanks for sharing your idea with us.
Happy Crafting!!

What a great idea for patterns. I use them to wrap gifts in but ruffles would be cute for collages. And the flowers are very sweet. I hope you have a good weekend.

There is just something I love about pattern ruffles. Maybe it's the color, or the sheerness. Who knows, but I have gotten hooked. Great heart pocket.
