Faux Crochet Tutorial from Danielle Flanders

A fun faux crochet tutorial from Danielle Flanders! Hooray! She says, "I love the look of crocheted flowers, but I don't know how to crochet, so I came up with a fun and easy technique to make a faux one to use on my layouts and cards!" Here's how:
Step 1: Cut the yellow yarn in the kit into 3 equal pieces. Tie them together at one end in a knot.

Step 2: Braid the entire length of the yarn. Tie the other end into a knot as well and trim the excess.

Step 3: Punch a circle (1" or 2" depending on the length of your yarn or how large you want your flower to be). Apply adhesive.

Step 4: Starting in the center, adhere one end. Wrap around until all the way finished. Tuck end underneath to the bottom and adhere.

Now you can layer it with other items to make a flower, or fill in the center with a button and stick pin.

Beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration Danielle! (we have another mini-album post ready for you tomorrow at 9 am CST). :)
