Step one: Using a long basting stitch, make an 8" folded fabric strip.
Step Two: Pull the bottom thread to gather.
Option 1: You can simply roll the flower up for a rosette-style flower.
Option 2: Add misted lace and a pearled flower center to fancy it up, using the ruffled fabric/lace cupcake photos as inspiration!
(White pearl flower and lace trim from October kit, hint hint...misted with Glimmer Mist in Tuscan Sun, Cosmos, and Banana Pudding)
