First question-Where did I get the crocheted flowers? No-I did not make them. (not a chance) I actually ordered them from SU last year and I am finally using them. I do know someone that makes them and can do them in the color of your choice. They are 2/$1
Second question-One I missed in my directions. After I decided the pattern I adhered the papers to a 12x12 piece of cardstock. (I was not sure if this was going to work so I did not put it directly on the canvas) After I had the 12x12 covered I then trimmed about 1/8 an inch around the whole page and that allowed for the peek of the canvas.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
