~Oh Vintage Lace, how I love thee!~

Good morning my fellow crafters!

I had such a great response to the layout I did last week with the
big fat raindrop on it, I thought I would make a quick
video tutorial of the lace flower I made...they are so quick
and easy to make, plus they look fabulous! I love saving $$ and making
my own embellishments. I am thinking about making some hair clips too!
You can find yards and yards of vintage lace at Goodwill or on eBay!
It is so beautiful, I love it all!

If you have not signed up to be a part of Timeless Daydreams,
now is the time.
They are having an impromptu CROP!
RIGHT HERE


Have a crafty-liscous day!

I would never thought of that to buy vintage lace...I will need to check out our stores.

I tell ya Cristal....I think you should develop your own line of scrappy stuff.....you most certainly have the talent for it.

Thats awesome, thanks so much! I actually have HEAPS of lace in the cupboard that I intended on sewing with, but never could find a reason for, now I have a reason!

Thanks again!

Tricia said...

love those flowers! What kind of adhesive did you use? I couldn't catch it in the video and I'd love to give it a try.

I used Helmar 450 quick dry but you could also use hot glue if you cannot find Helmar, it is hard to find but oh so worth it!
