Blossoms Of Maline Or Net

These may be made by using the same pattern as for the American Beauty

rose, selecting the size required. (See illustration.) Lay a strip of

tie wire inside along the bias fold. Gather along the curved edge and

draw down tight. This brings the two ends of the tie wire together, and

they should be twisted lightly. Arrange four or five leaves around a

few yellow stamens. If green tie wire is used, it is not necessary to

wind the stems; otherwise brown gum tissue may be wound around the stem.

From this pattern many different blossoms may be made, varying it

slightly, such as rosebuds, sweet peas, and apple blossoms.
