Flowers and Hearts for Scrapbooking

My mum asked me to make her some flowers and hearts for scrap-booking, so this is some of what I came up with, using a 4 ply white cotton.
white flowers and hearts made with 4 ply cotton and 2mm and 3 mm hooks, ideal for scrapbooking
Mum said she preferred if I just used white so that she can dye them any colour she wants to match her cards. I hope one day I can share pictures of the cards she makes with these flowers and hearts. For these I used a 2mm or 3mm hook. For the hearts, I followed my favourite heart pattern at Suzie's Stuff. The 3 larger 5 or 6 petal flowers are based on my flower pattern. The smallest flower of 5 petals is 4 ch, all st into 1st ch, 2 tr 2 ch sl st (2 ch 2 tr 2 ch sl st) repeat until you have desired number of petals.
