What do you do with a lot of carefully hand made flower brooches that did not sell at the popular school summer fayre craft stall?
Turn them into gorgeous cards!
Although the stall itself was a huge success these little flower pins proved to be unsaleable last year. Not wanting the hard work of many busy mums to go to waste, we are using them in a different way this year and turning them into cards.
Such a fantastic way to give a greeting and a special little gift to a friend at the same time. They have turned out so well that I really want to buy all of them all!
The flower brooch pattern can be found here, although as with all things handmade we adapted ours slightly. If you feel inspired to use up all your fabric scraps and make a pretty accessory which would easily brighten up a coat or a bag they were fairly simple to make.
Using these fantastic rainbow coloured envelopes, which were kindly donated but can be bought here, and good quality card our little craft group set to work to turn the brooches into pretty greeting cards.
Just right for a special friend.
Which one is your favourite?
