Embroidery Floss Flowers for PTI Blog Hop

Time for the Papertrey Ink blog hop; this month we were asked to use embroidery floss. I don’t have much time to post this so I’ll add lots more details when I get home.

I adhered a foam circle on a piece of cardstock with the backing still on and placed a circle Nestability over it as a guide. Then I looped my floss using the circle as a guide to how long the petals should be; I used three different sizes for these flowers. When the petals were done, I placed a red line tape circle over it to secure the floss and adhere the button.
