Floral Editorial Inspiration

1

Flowers come in many shapes and sizes. Even though everyone has a flower preference, most would agree on their beauty. When creating an  arrangement you are greeted with something unexpected; a sophisticated rose may look great next to a playful sunflower or an adorable daffodil. Likewise these odd pairings work well in fashion. Often taking a risk and combining two unique prints will create something better than you had anticipated. The following floral editorials prove that floral prints are no longer restricted to feminine detailing.

With Paris Fashion Week rounding up, we are beyond obsessed with anything and everything black and white. The major trend highlighted at every show inspired us to create this lace belt. This Chanel inspired D.I.Y will spruce up a plain white tee or a fab gown ready to be taken out on the town. Check out our selection of elegant lace and beaded trims on our site.

SUPPLIES:
Beacon Magna-Tas 809 Glue

3″ Rigid Lace from M&J Trimming

Grossgrain Bow from M&J Trimming

Mundial 8.5″ Dressmaker Shears Scissor

SuppliesSTEPS:
1. Cut lace in half based on the floral design(One side will be larger than the other depending on which lace was selected)
2. Fold the thinner piece in half3. Glue both halves together creating a thicker piece (You can match the lace or mismatch for a more romantic touch…)

4. Pick up the leftover piece of lace and lay this piece under the now thicker band making sure it is centered.
Step 45. Using your Beacon Magna-Tac 809, now glue down this piece for an additional layered look
