Now onto today's Little Lace Flower tutorial!
What you'll need:
Lace Trim - Felt - Glue Gun
Step One: Trace and cut two circles out of your felt.
Step Two: Apply a thin bead of glue to the outside of your felt circle.
Step Three: Stick the inside edge of your lace trim to the glue.
Step Four: Continue steps 2&3 in small increments. 
(I used an old thimble to prevent burning my fingers on the hot glue.)
Step Five: When you get to the center just cut your trim and glue end down.
Optional Steps: Now you can either leave the lace flower as is or embellish the center:
(I found these adorable brads at Target)
You will want to make a pilot hole with your craft knife, then add your brad.
Now you have a cute little lace flower!
Isn't she pretty! You can use this so many different ways! I choose to put it on a large bobby pin.
(When I make soft headbands I sew the elastic with a long overlap and opening so I can slide these puppies right in!)
To secure to the bobby pin slide you 2nd piece on felt through the center.
Now glue your lace flower on top!
Tada! I love the vintage feel & can't wait to wear it! Well thanks so much for having me! Come check out Aly&Ash for more great projects, tutorials & free templates! And don't miss Jessica's guest post Friday! Have a great day!

Those lace flowers are darling! I have to make 100 all for myself :)

P.S. I made your orange rolls and they were a huge hit at my office! I will post on them very soon. The picture is AWFUL because I forgot to take one at home and had to use my phone before they got devoured.
