Do-It-Yourself Flower Accents

Add blooms of style to your scrapbook pages with one-of-a-kind flower embellishments you can make yourself.
Doily Flowers

Design by Lisa Storms

With creative folding, round doilies from the cake-decorating aisle of the crafts store turn into textural flowers for a layout. For each flower, fold five doilies in half. Fold each doily again, this time a little more than half. Fold the last fold back again, only halfway. Glue the tips of the folded doilies together, and adhere a punched cardstock circle to the center to secure.

Editor's Tip: Customize them by inking or chalking them to match your background papers.
