Flower Power!

Last night we attended the Power Flower Party at Convention! We always have a great time and this was no exception! We were told to wear our best flowers so we decided to do a flower swap. 18 of us made wearable flowers of some kind - pins, rings, bracelets. The first photo is my swap.

These were really easy to make! You will need to use a polyester fabric of some kind (I used a polyester satin). Die cut circles with the Circles #2 Sizzix Die. There are 4 different sizes of circles. I used 2 of each size and layered them. I used our Rhinestone brads for the center (hint: put the brad through each layer - it's easier, especially with more slippery fabrics). Spread the wings of the brad. Using your heat tool, heat up the circles until they start to curl. You will need to play around with how much you want the flowers to curl up. Please be careful - these will get hot! Use something to hold the flower down on the table.



Each year our fearless leader, Kim, gives us a green hat that goes along with the theme of Convention. With the thousands of demonstrators that attend Convention, wearing a funky hat of some kind makes it easier to find each other! This year, our hats were the perfect place for pins!
