Crochet Trim Flowers

Good day, Stashers!  Shellye here with a very easy way to create some simple flowers using crochet trim.
I have used the VINTAGE VOGUE trims by Collage Press/Pink Paislee in making these.  In this pack there are three different colors of trim and each are 1 yard each.
First, cut a 12" strip of trim.
Thread an embroidery needle with a thick floss, crochet thread or baker's twine (you won't see it, so color doesn't matter much).
I simply followed the natural loop of the trim to guide my needle and thread through.
Once you've threaded the entire length of the trim, gently pull the thread until a desired scallop is formed.
Tuck the top thread back through to the back of the scallop and then tie off and cut excess thread.
 Here is a sample of the final flower.  I also dabbed just a little no-fray to the ends.  You may add large brads, rhinestones, pearls or any round accent to complete the center.
 My finished layout featuring many of the fabulous products from the VINTAGE VOGUE collection.
