I have been really obsessed with wanting to try to make these pins, and a few days ago, I saw this AWESOME VIDEO by Christy Daugherty and I thought WOW… OK… I CAN DO THIS!!  Thanks Christy for the awesome instructions!  This project idea was originally shown on stage at our Stampin' Up! Convention in August 2009 by company owner Shelli Gardner and I've been intrigued by this idea ever since!

Here are 3 of the 4 pins I made tonight… I love black, white and red, so decided to stick within that theme to start off with:

3 pins

These are soooooooooo quick and easy to make because you cut the fabric flowers out with our FLOWER FOLDS DIE and the STAMPIN' UP! BIG SHOT!!!!  I just hot glued everything together per Christy's video… so this truly is a quick and easy project.

I wanted to make a pin specfically for my NEW VERA BRADLEY tote bag (that my awesome brother and his wife gave me for Christmas!!!)… so here is what I came up with:

It really looks even better in person.. if you are going to Leadership this coming week you'll have to stop me to come see it 🙂


Here is my pile.. do you think I have enough to make about 50 more ?? 🙂
