              THE ART OF MILLINERY 
  Scraps of silk and chiffon may be turned to use in 
various ways, made into blossoms for the same purpose 
as the above, mounted with foliage for hair and corsage 
ornaments, or made into petals to mingle with the petals 
of roses or violets, in flower chapeaux. Button orna- 
ments of silk, laid over with spangled lace, are pretty as 
centers to rosettes, and can be made of "scraps."
