I have been playing in my craft room and I wanted to share what I made out of a few simple supplies you may already have in your craft space.
Coffee Filter (Mine is Tea-Dyed)
Glue of your choice
I really had fun making this rose and would encourage you to get out your fabric scraps, bits and pearls and create your one-of-kind hand made rose. I used a beautifully embellished swatch from a vintage wedding dress from the 1930's that I found at my local Salvation Army. The dress had gorgeous details of Venice lace floral appliques, pearls and silver metallic bugle beads intricately placed all over the dress on a net material.

|Here is my Tea-Dyed Coffee Filter|
|Folded into a cone shape and twisted the bottom to create the rose|
|Vintage Shabby Chic Stamens|
|1930's Wedding Gown Swatch|
I added a spot of Fabri-Tac to the end to hold it in place. Then I took some vintage stamens and wrapped a piece of crochet lace around the stamens and placed those inside of the middle of the rose and added some more Fabri-Tac, then I turned down the sides of the coffee filter to give it some dimension and interest and added small pieces pieces of the embellished wedding gown swatch to the edges and inside the layers of the rose.
Most of my inspiration to create comes from embellished clothing. If it says romance then I have to have it.
Come back to see me again, I will have another embellished rose to share with you that is PINK!!!!!
Have a fabulous day lovelies and thanks for coming by to see my latest creation.
