Today I want to share a quick video tutorial on how to make lace flowers! 

You will need about 14" of 3 Girl Jam Lace
wire cutters
Needle nose pliers
Straighten out paper clip

Using the paper clip, weave along the bottom of the lace

Once all the lace is on the paper clip,

Bend and twist the paper clip. Clip off excess paper clip and using the needle nose pliers bend the clip under
