Tips for creating crafty doilies

Good morning, Steph here today with a fun tip to share.

Do you have lots of doilies around the house? Those lovely delicate pieces of tissue that Grandma always used as decorative elements for her cakes? Well, if you do, here's a fun tip to decorate them - use Globecraft & Piccolo Embossing Powders. You can take plain old white doilies and make them fabulous in any color you want.


On these doilies, I  used Piccolo Adhesive and added liberal mounts of  Poodle Skirt Embossing Powder to the doily in the upper left; Girls Night Out Embossing Powder to the doily in the upper right and Mossy Glen Embossing Powder to the bottom one. 

You do need a delicate touch, though. Pressing the adhesive too hard on the doily will tear it as you can see here. These doilies may not look like much now, but wait until you see the projects I have planned for them on Monday's post. Be sure to come back for more!
