Layered Paper flower Doilies are addictive. I was redirected to this amazing Blog by Christine Middlecamp. She was running a Embellished Doilie Project.
Every other day she had a step by step tutorial showing how to create her awesome Doilies. I tell you it is inspiration at its best! It inspired me to create a set of Cutting Files for your Digital Die-Cutter to make your very own doilies – Doilie Shapes Set 1.
Well naturally there where a few who wanted to create these Doilies but did not own a cutter. Today I have a solution for you! 😉
All my Cutting Files include both PNG and PSD so you can still hand cut if you wish (although I would not recommend it with this specific shape) or you can use the easy way out which I will demonstrate today. So I hope I have you inspired…lets get started!
- Doilie Shapes Set 1
- Beautiful Life Collab between MKC and Wendy Page (Doilies are included in this kit!)
- Red River Polar Matte
- 12×12 Coordinating Cardstock
- Trimmer and Scissors
- Dimensional Glue Dots
- Glossy Accents
- Embellishments (Brads, Flowers etc.)
I created 9 4×4 inch canvasses in my photo editing program. I decorated them with digital papers and embellishments. I also printed out additional embellishments to layer and add dimension.
Print out all your 4×4 squares and extras. Arrange them on a 12×12 Cardstock. This already looks pretty just as it is!
I cut out 2 extra flowers to layer onto this doilie with a nice big jewel brad. I added some Glimmer Mist to make it shiny.
I cut out a few more stickers and adhered them with some dimensional glue dots. I also added a jeweled brad for some bling.

I cut out a sticker and adhered it with a glue dot and a pretty brad.
I layered a hand cut flower with a felt flower and a pearl brad. I did the same with the larger sticker.
I punched out 4 circles and made this pretty paper flower. I also cut out one of the gem brad included in the kit and with Dimensional Glaze I added some dimension to the brad making it look almost like the real thing. I had to wait for this to dry before I took the final photo…
Another set with Hand cut flowers and stickers layered with some felt flowers and brads.
I layered a gorgeous flower with a jeweled brad. I curled the edges of the paper to create the illusion of real flowers. This one turned out really well.
Another Paper flower this time using a scalloped circle punch, which I layered with felt flowers and brads. I also added a tiny bow for added dimension.
So do you see that even though this looks difficult it is very easy to create!
Want to see the final project?
Here are some more close ups…
I hope you enjoyed this and that you will try it at home! You dont have to attempt a big project like this you can also just do 3 hanging from a piece of ribbon or send it as a card.
