I see a lot of doilies around, and I especialy like the ones that look like this.

So are these all pre-bought doilies or are there punches out there that can make these? I just think it would be so cool to have all different colors and even have patterned paper doilies that look like these really ornate ones.

I got some doilies at the Dollar Store. They don't look as nice as these do, but I saw that you can mist them or dye them with Rit.

Yes. Some are regular, paper doilies, and there ARE punches that make them, or dies.
There are probably ways to cut them with a diecutting machine too.

If you go to the cake decorating section in any craftstore you should be able to buy them by the package. They are made by wilton. I purchased about 20 small ones for $2.50

I use doilies a lot. I get them from the cake decorating section of Michael's.

We R Memory Keepers has doilies and so does Little Yellow Bicycle (who also have heart shaped ones).

My concern about the doilies at the dollar or wedding stores: are they acid free?
I do love the look!

My mom used to decorate cakes when I was little and over the years i've found her wilton doilies all turned yellow. Her doilies were probably 30-40 years old.

That's why I like to use the ones I make - I can also make them out of any paper I want: foils, pearls, cardstock, patterned papers, etc.

Even if they are not acid-free, the cheap ones would be good to use as masks to glimmer mist...

Michael's had some paper doilies not too long ago in different colors like a melon-ish color, yellow, green, purple...can't remember what other colors. I used the paper doily ones from the cake section also. I also bought some off of Etsy.

The acid free thing doesn't bother me either, but I don't like it when things turn yellow. I have old doilies out of their packages (about 15 years old) and they are yellowed.
I do use packaged doilies sometimes anyway

A site called my favorite things has some die cuts called Die namics. There are several gorgeous doily dies that you can use in Cuttlebug, Sizzing Big, etc. That way you could use all of your favorite paper

The doilies used for baking may not be acid free but 30 - 40 years from now I won't be around to care. And if they turn yellowish they'll just look old as will the layouts...and by then the layouts will be heritage layouts.
I dye them too or chalk them. I keep meaning to spray them with archival spray....I'll try that and see if they fall apart.
Oh and I forgot about the Cricut Mothers Day Cart..it has a doily design and I used it on this layout. It took a few minutes for the cricut to cut it this large and several minutes to punch out the design but it was worth it. I stamped, chalked and added fake stitching.
