this is so lovely!

I love the flowers and lights! I have a recipe for making those silicone tips that I adore.... so many uses, not enough places to drape lights [sigh].

Such a clever idea!!

Quick question... I really want to make these great flowers, but am concerned if they are a fire hazard??? Thanks:)

I love the look of the old pattern paper, and can almost here the crinkle of the paper as you wrap the flowers. . .thank you for sharing, I may have to look for some interesting paper and follow your example!

wow, I love these! Yes, you should wear this as a necklace, and I would like to join you! Thanks for the inspiration. Denise

Love your blog! I've been making flowers from old pattern paper for years. I had never thought to add lights-what a great idea!

I used to manage a big fabric store. When new patterns come in, the old ones have to be thrown away. Can you believe that? Same thing happens with magazines, books and tons of merchandise in all of the major stores. It's heartbreaking.

I have a part-time job doing merchandising and just recently had to throw away many display appliances and sewing machines. Makes me sick to my stomach. With the sewing machines, I was suppsed to cut the cord first. I had to close my eyes and have someone else do it!

Very pretty! They don't catch on fire, I guess.

I love this! Great tutorial!

I just love this idea. I was trying to come up with something similiar but I don't sew. I think i might have to start.
I love Candylights, I offer them on my site PINKHUGSSWEETSHOPPE.COM.

I've added your project to the Stone Soup Challenge blog. Thanks for your permission to use the image! http://stonesoupchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/03/easter-candy.html

I'm just sure that I'm going to make these and never be able to stop. I think also no matter where I put them it will never be as gorgeous as this photo! Thank you for the tutorial though. I know what I'm doing this evening:)

What a fabulous creative idea Miss Andrea! So soft and pretty!!!! Thanks for sharing with us! XOOX,Jenn

I totally love your idea!! Thanks so much for sharing! I can imagine how your husband looked at you when you said you want to wear it as a necklace. My husband and I are the same way ;-)

oh those lights are so wonderful -thanks for sharing!!

My daughter just sent me your blog. What a fabulous idea for pattern use! Bravo!!

I do love the lights to, but you know, those patterns are now considered 'vintage' and bring MONEY!!!!! Google vintage sewing patterns and see :) I wonder if there is any beige tissue paper? (I like beige too, especially with white)

A seamstress :)

I can't wait to make these lights. Do you think any indoor mini lights would work? I will hang them around my double door between my dining room and living room. I live in an adorable old cottage and these will look just right. Thank you so much!

can you light them up? will the paper burn if they are lit up for very long? they are very pretty. thank you for sharing. best regards, Marti
