:FIVE FAVES: By Motif...Doilies...

doi·ly : n. pl. doi·lies
1. A small ornamental mat, usually of lace or linen.
2. A small table napkin.

Doilies may be generally thought of as a lacey item used in home decor, but they function just as well as a lovely touch for our scrapbooking creations.

Doilies don't always have to be round either! This doily-like pattern would be a beautiful way to dress up a plain cardstock background.

These mini-doilies can serve as cute little flowers. A decorative brad can dress them up even further and also serve the function of connecting them to the page.

Maya Road - Kraft Collection - Die Cut Doilies
Take these kraft cardstock doiles and customize them with color however you please...or leave them plain for understated elegance.

Unity Stamp - Bella Blvd Collection - Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set - Bella Doilies
This is another great product that gives doilies extra mileage. Stamp embellishments, backgrounds and more in any color you choose.

Websters Pages - Designer Threads - Fabric Embroidery Pieces - Doilies
These embroidered doilies look so elegant and delicate. I love the muted colors, too!
