PTI Boutique Accessory Challenge



Today's Challenge at Papertrey's Anniversary Festivities was to create a handmade accessory.  I decided to make a hairpin, I thought my daughter was a bit old for barrettes but when I showed her my pin the first thing she said is can I have it?   Sold.

I die cut three different sizes of Beautiful Blooms II in Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst felt, used Zip Dry to attach the layers and to attach the pin to the hairpin.  I topped it with a Raspberry Fizz button and then pulled out Button Boutique for my base.  I used an Xacto knife to cut two slits on the card that the pin could slide into.



All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Stamps: Button Boutique
Ink:  Raspberry Fizz
Dies: Button Boutique, Beautiful Blooms II
Felt:  Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst
other: hairpin, Raspberry Fizz button, pink embroidery floss
