Flower Pin

I bought a few of these flower pins in pink and blue a few years ago to pin on sweaters and wear in my hair. I was looking at one of the pins this weekend and thought… I can make one of these and for a fraction of the price.

Here are the instructions for this project:

1. Use the Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge and a Gypsy to create the flower petals. I used the two different style leaves. I used two sizes for the plain leaf (bottom row of white buttons, two buttons from the left) – 2″ tall and 1.5″ wide and 1.5″ tall and 1″ wide. and I used one size for the heart shaped leaf (bottom row of white buttons, 5 buttons from the left) – 2.25″ tall and 2″ wide.

2. I cut three plain shaped leaves and 3 heart shaped leaves on a double sided patterned paper. I used a thick cardstock so I put the thickness setting on 5.

3. I ran the paper wrong side up through a zyron. You could also use fabric tac or any heavy duty wet glue.

4. I then placed the sequence ribbon on the patterned paper covering each petal completely.

5. I used dimensional glue dots to adhere them in place.

6. I added a large rhinestone to the center and glued a pin to the back of the flower.

I hope you enjoyed this project… have a great Thursday!

    hey, I’ve been prompted to comment twice today on posts! Most unusual to do so at all! However, could not resist – I have one of these pins too (in seaside village, Victoria, Australia). What a good idea – will enable me to make a pair in another colour. Thankyou!
