Quick Crochet Flower
1.Take your desired amount of crochet trim or ribbon;  I used about 2 foot of The Girl's Paperie JUBILEE crochet trim.
Photo #1
2. From the right end, fold the edge of the trim over to the left (as shown in photo #1).  Leave about a 2" tail.

3. Next, fold the folded edge again to the left (you may do this a couple of times, depending on the width of the material used.) Photo #2.
4. Hold the folded end in your right hand securely and the longer length of trim in your left hand.

5. With the left hand, begin turning the trim as you work counter-clockwise against the trim held in your right hand. Photo #3.
6. Continue folding the trim as you create the desired 'petal' looks. It maybe necessary to add a little dab of fabric glue between layers to secure it as you're working.
7. Once you've reached the desired look, snip off any remaining ribbon and carefully glue down with fabric glue.  Attach to a felt or paper circle.  Your Scrapbook Stash NOW carries GLUBBERS from Cosmo Cricket, which make the ideal base for your fabric flowers.
Embellish as desired.  I also used the seam binding, cabochon and pennant from The Girl's Paperie Jubliee line :)
Perfect for cards, package or bag accents, lapel pins, hair bands, barrettes, Christmas tree decorations, jar toppers and lots more.  I really liked working with the crochet trim; it's easy to manipulate and stays true to form as you're working.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Enjoy the HOP...see you soon!

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
