[Make] Felt Flower Pin

This was a last-minute birthday flower for one of Smarty Pant's teachers.  I literally put it together in 15 minutes, so it's a winner in my book!

To create the felt flower, I used this tutorial that I found on skip to my lou by guest poster blue robin cottage.  All you need is wool felt, a glue gun and scissors.

Now here's what you'll need to do to add a fun washi tape stem--

Use a leftover faux stem (or stick or thick wire) and wrap it in washi tape.

I wanted Mrs. B to be able to wear the flower as a pin, so I bent the wired stem and taped it into a loop. Now the pin can easily be removed.

To create the leaf, I put some washi tape on wax paper and cut out the leaf shape.
I attached the leaf to the stem with a little piece of washi tape.

Wouldn't this make a cute giveaway for a bridal shower?  Or, if you back it with a clip, barrettes for a girl's birthday party?  The possibilities are endless.

Happy Creating!
