I saw these online somewhere and thought, how cute! So I made them for my downline as part of their little "goody" bag that I give them at convention. They were made using our new In Color card stock, DSP and ribbon. I hope they like them!! If you would like to try these, see the Instructions below.
To make these, cut your card stock at 4-1/4" x 7-3/4". Next, score at 3", 3-1/2", 7-1/4". The 1/2" end is turned up and stapled. Have fun embellishing any way you want. We layered a piece of coordinating DSP. The flower on the front is from the Flower, Daisies #2 die. Use brads or buttons for the center.
The inside piece (holding the paper clips) measures at 3" x 3-1/2". An Exact-o was used to create three small slits, just large enough for the paper clip to hook through. The flowers on the paper clips are from the Boho Flower punch, Trio Flower punch and Flower Fusion. We actually took the retired flowers (the Pink Pirouette ones) and dyed them Melon Mambo.
To die the felt flowers: Place a few drops of water in a small baggie. Add a few drops of ink. Place the flowers in the baggie and "smush" around. They were next laid out to dry. You can probably use the heat gun to speed up this process. Use a variety of cardstock and DSP for your flower layers. Small rhinestone brads were used in the centers. Glue dots were used to keep the front and back flowers together around the paper clip. This way they look nice from both sides.
