What you will need:
3 x 1/2 metre long lengths of lace
Needle and thread
Button for centre
Some plastic pearl beads
Lay each piece of lace on top of the other with the straight edges aligned (And excuse my lack of lovely fingernails!)
Take your need and thread and do a running stitch along the straight edge, gently tugging the thread as you go so that the lace gathers.
Continue all the way to the end of the lace length, continually tugging to gather the lace. Pull the thread tightly and stitch the two ends closed to complete your flower. Pop a knot on the back of the flower to hold the stitching.
Glue your button in the centre of the flower
Glue your pearl beads around the outside edge of your centre button and you're done!
