Doily mania..

I think I’m a bit late in the game, but I have just fallen in love with doilies.

Yes.. doilies.

I had purchased about 150 doilies from a party supply store with the intension of using them for another project. It turns out that I didn’t use them and was left with all these doilies.

My first instinct was to return them. But as I looked at them, I just couldn’t get myself to do it. The detail was so intricate. I could never really replicate that on my Cameo without the headache of dealing with millions of tiny paper scraps..

And they were less than $20, and that’s including the shipping!!

I had to keep it.

Now I’ve got tons of doilies.. I sense a “doily” theme in a lot of the projects coming up.

Here’s the “Thank You” card I made with half of a doily. What do you think?!
