Boutique Accessories...

Welcome back to another Papertrey Ink countdown! We are working with some new stamps and dies today that are coming out on the 15th of this month.  I used the Boutique Accessories stamps and dies to create these little gifts.

There are 2 dies in this set. First I used a patterned paper by Crate Paper to cut the front piece.

Here you can see how the little pins will clip on! SO CUTE! You don't have to use these, there are other kinds of clips you can use, but these are just an example.

Next, I cut the back piece from Rustic Cream Cardstock and stamped the tops with Boutique Accessories in True Black ink to keep it simple and elegant.

Now you'll wrap the front piece around the back piece and adhere the ends on the back.

I am obsessed with burlap now that I have it in my hot little hands! lol I have been meaning to go to the fabric store and invest in some, but our closest fabric store is about 1/2 hour away, so I don't get down that way very often. I'm glad Papertrey Ink has it now.

So for my accessory, I decided to do a burlap brooch that you could slip onto a jacket. I cut 2 circles of burlap (one smaller than the other) and added a strip of burlap on the top with a resin flower in the center. It's all hot glued together onto the pin. You can add a little piece of felt onto the pin before adhering the burlap flower. That will help to hold it in place much better on the back.

You can use these in your hair or clip them onto a jacket, sweater or scarf. Oh the cuteness! Think of all the possibilities!

They can be made for any holiday or occasion, and wouldn't they be fun to sell at a holiday or craft bazaar? They're so inexpensive to make.
Boutique Accessories will be available at 10 pm EST on FEB 15th at The other girls have lots to show you also, so stop by each one of their blogs as well!

Not sure if love is a strong enough word for how much I like these. Ever since I saw your burlap nest I knew I wanted to try something like that, and I just love the similar look on these clips.
