Princess Petals Flower Tutorial

TGIF!  Dana here today sharing a quick tutorial on how to make your own Princess Petal flowers.  I love flowers and the Webster's Pages Princess Petals are some of my all time favorites.  The soft layers of fabric are so romantic and the flower centers have the perfect touch of bling with just a single pearl or rhinestone.  I've had a package of Webster's Pages Netting in my stash for some time and thought I'd try to make my own Princess Petals.

Here is a photo of my inspiration piece.

These flowers are quick and easy to create with some basic supplies.

Webster's Pages Netting
Prima E-line Pearls and Crystals
Needle and Thread

Step 1: Cut several different sizes of circles from the netting and tulle.  Note: I used 10 circles for each flower.

Step 2: Using a lighter, carefully melt the edges of each circle.  Note: This step will help smooth any uneven edges and also seal the fabric to prevent it from fraying.  It is not necessary to touch the fabric to the flame to melt the edges of each petal.  Be careful not to burn the edges of the fabric or your fingers!

Step 3: Stack the layers of fabric from large to small and stitch the petals together using a needle and thread.

Step 4: Finish the flower by adding a rhinestone or pearl to the center.

I'll be using my new flowers soon!  You can stock up on lace, rhinestones and crystals by visiting the Your Memories Here Store.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy scrapping!
