Making a flower from a Border

Came across this little tidbit while surfing some favorite blogs. What a great trick to have in your back pocket, especially when you are out at a crop and can't bring all your supplies with you.  I tried it, and it really was quick and easy.  From Miss Fancy Pants:

I also formed the scalloped border piece into a flower. I started by taking some of the “sticky” off the back and then crumpling and then flattening it out again, which made it easier to form. I then added a thread button to the center for a bit of dimension."

By the way, if you don't know how to "remove the sticky" just rub some cornstarch or baby powder on the back.  I have so many paper borders though, that I don't even need to use my stickers.  Especially those borders I cut off Sassafras Lass papers that don't have an immediate need.  I must have dozens of those!
