Home Made Flower Tag

A few days ago (more like a week) I was experimenting with some home made fabric flowers. While I was down in Florida, I had stopped into a Jo-Ann's (not coincidentally, mind you, unbeknownst to my sweet husband) and I purchased some beautiful, silky fabrics. I messily cut up some strips and set about sewing a shabby flower. Here's the result of this haphazard sewing project:

I coated the edges with some Platinum Stickles and found a decorative brad for the middle:

Some Zva Creative pearl goodness:

I added some lovely Wired Pink Netting from the Ribbon Carousel:

A dash of cute buttons and some glittered chipboard flourishes:

I have another tag that I'll post tomorrow along these same lines...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

    Andrea, I don't have time to email you as it's almost 2am here and I am trying hard to catch up before I go to bed, so I will ask here: please would you email me your address, I would like to send you some of my pins if you think that's ok.
    Best wishes Linda x
