Handmade Box Pleat Trim Flowers

 You can buy box pleat trim at the store or make your own as I did here but creating stunning flowers for your projects is easy using this trim.

 Start with lace or ribbon trim and dye/distress to your liking.  I used the below products to make the blue flower by dying cream lace trim with teal Color Shine (excellent product), then distressed with inks and made small box pleats and secured with sewing machine.  Added some glitter with Uhu glue, coiled onto a 1 1/4 inch circle with hot glue and adhered center embellishment.
