I just love StampinUp’s new Fun Flowers die from the Occasions Mini catalog!!!!!!!! I have a workshop tomorrow and I wanted to share a fashion accessory and this is what I came up with. Some are hair clips, some are jacket pins, and the one in the middle is a bookmark (inspired by the bookmark I received from my SAM at Leadership). I must say, I LOVE the feather ones! I think these things took about 5 minutes to make. I gave the white one to my 9 year old. She went outside to play and when her 2 friends saw them, they politely asked me if I could make one for them. It was a great feeling to hear them ask me! I must have a hit of a project on my hands. I asked them what color they wanted (I had a ton of felt laying around) and they picked black and pink. In minutes, I showed up outside with their hair clips and they were shocked I had them done so fast. 😉

So easy…. I cut out a Medium flower, a small flower, and the 2 little circles from regular felt (5 for $1 at my local craft store and you can make 4 flowers from 1 sheet). I also cut 2 pieces of tulle. I just had the thin stuff that you use on gifts but it seemed to work pretty good. I layered everything together, punch a hole in the center with the Crop-a-Dile and inserted a rhinestone brad. I hot glued a hair clip on the back and that’s it!

The bookmark is basically 2 of these hot glued together and I put ribbon on the brad before I closed it up.

I hope you will give these a try! They are definitely what I call SIMPLY SIMPLE!
