Vintage Sewing Pattern Flowers

 I used some vintage sewing patterns last month to make storage pockets, and gift tags.  I decided to hunt down ideas for how to use the remnants (uhh...30 or so more patterns, I guess I went a little crazy).  I've found lots of ideas, but in the midst of a busy August, this was one I was able to throw together quickly.  I saw these for sale at a scrapbook store about an hour from my house.  Old scraps of patterns....check. 
 You could use a cricut or a punch to punch out flours, but I just folded the pattern in half, in half again, in half again and then cut a curved top. 
 Tada a paper flower...
 Stack, and then push a decorate brad, or sew on a button, and I've got some accessories for crafts.
