“Quilted” Paper Flower Embellishments

January10

The Look of Love                                                                            One of my first attempts at paper flower “quilting” – I first saw this technique in a CTMH catalog – take 2 paper flowers of the same size (preferably of 2 different colors for the contrast) – (the bigger the better -makes it easier)….pierce holes inside the inner part of the petals (along the inside) – stitch a running stitch along the edges- once you have it stitched, use some micro-tip point type scissors and very carefully cut out the inside of each petal (be careful as to NOT cut through your stitches – and honestly it doesn’t have to be super close for it to look good…) once you have the inner petals cut out put another paper flower underneath – I personally stitched 2 stitches on the outside tip of each petal through both flowers to keep the flowers lined up ….. gives a soft quilted look to the flowers.
