More New Items - I Can't Stop!


I can't stop making new things! :) Thanks to everyone who posted comments for my ancestor spoons. I'll have updated pictures of that soon. I've boiled it down to pendants and ones that are bent so they prop up to look like an oval picture frame.

My new project today though is PIN CARDS! I don't know why this didn't occur to me sooner, but I was making some handmade cards this weekend and had my circle cutter out that I make the pins with when I realized I could combine the two. I just happen to be cutting up a little field guide to wild flowers from 1945 and decided to let them be my prototypes. I like how they turned out. I cut the picture out to make the pin and then cut the flower description out and glued it to the front of the card. The inside is blank for you to write your own message.

The only thing I haven't had time to test yet is how will the pin fare when mailed in a regular envelope? I don't know if it'll get dented or if the cardstock paper will support it. My mother is mailing one to my Aunt today to see how it works. She sent her a strawberry one.
