As you take the normal opportunities of your daily life and
create something of beauty and helpfulness, you improve not
only the world around you but also the world within you.

More Wedding Details.....Flower Pins

Now, don't mind the poor photography, but you will get the idea.

For the wedding our sister wanted all the girls in plum sweaters with pencil skirts. Seeing as flowers are such a cheap, fun and easy way to spice things up a bit, we decided to make a flower pin for each of the girls.
We took different shades of purple fabric, as well as a few different types of material (satin, taffeta, and netting) and cut out various sizes of circles. We then melted the edges of each circle with a lighter, placed the circles ontop of each other in layers and stuck a brad through to connect them all.
After this we just used some Aleene's Jewel-It embellishing glue (found at Michaels) and attached pearls (from neclaces at Dollorama). Allow glue to dry then place a few safety pins on the back to attach to sweater! Voila! They turned out cute and added that needed little touch of colour and texture!
*A good tutorial is found on the blog "Make It & Love It".
