Lollipop Flowers

I've been admiring the beautiful handmade flowers that my sisters at Our Daily Bread Designs have been using on their cards and I've finally learned how to make them.  They are really easy and fun to make.  All you need is a little bit of satin fabric, a needle and thread, an embellishment for the center, a pair of scissors and a lighter.  I used buttons for my centers. Prima flowers like these are $5 for a pack of 2 or 3.  I made all 3 of these for about 50 cents.  If you search for lollipop flowers on YouTube you can find lots of tutorials on how to make them.   I embellished my layout below with 3 of the flowers.  The photo is of my husband and me in 2007.
