Birthday and bag Broaches, using Old and New Supplies

Recently I had a lovely party with a group of ladies and we have been making broaches.
These started as birthday badges for a couple of my carers who were 21. Then it turned into a broach for a bag, now the girls are making them in all different colours and for different occasions.

This was actually gold with glass glitter added, and Satan ribbon.
21 made using the alphabet die on the big shot.

This is us all having fun!

More and more to share with you..

Before scrunching up the flowers they are held to get her with a brad, we were using old stock as this will not be seen once the button is added. You pull each layer up to make the flower effect.

We used old ribbon stock and brads, but we have used the antiques brads, buttons to match the colour family if the card or ink used.

We cut the flowers using the big shot and the large flower Die. Some embossed using the lattice folder.

The DSP newsprint was punched out with the latest flower punch and before inking the edges with sponge daubers, we pushed them through the crimper to break the fibres in the paper to make them move better to make the flower shape.
The backs were made neat with an oval punched out the same colour card, this was taped down across a broach pin.
They all look do different but make fab presents to jazz up a birthday card or a bag, even your outfit.

This is fab Judith sorry I cut off your head! But I loved the fact you were wearing it straight away xxx
Sorry it been so long before I have posted this on the blog
