Crochet Flower Gone Bad

A couple of weeks ago I saw this cool video the web of making a crochet flower out of twine. I thought that was a neat idea. I sat down and set to work. An hour later, I still had nothing that represents a flower. After messing around with different stitches I ended up with the number 8.
Here is what I did.

1. Chain 5 on a I hook.
2. Slip stitch in first chain. It will make a ring.
3. Chain three and do nine double crochets in the ring.
4. Chain 7.
5. Repeat step 3 until the second ring is filled with double crochets.

Here is the finished card I used this number.


Supplies: white cardstock, celebrate paper by My Mind;s Eye, pattern paper - Lily Bee Designs, washi
tape - Queen & Co. , twine - Timeless Twine.
Stop by TT blog and see more info on the twine.
