Fabric Pin:
Extras: Vintage Brads, Different Satin, Velvet and Sheer Fabrics, Circles Die # 2, Big Shot, Candle, Crop a Dile, pin backs, sticky backed felt

·         Take 7 – 8 pieces of different types of fabric and die cut using the Circles Die #2.  If the fabric does not cut cleanly, cut the rest of the way around the circle with scissors. Die cut the sticky backed felt using the smaller of the circles on the Circles #2 Die.
·         Light candle and singe the edges of all of the circles.  Add sticky backed felt to the back side of the largest circle and layer the rest of the fabric together and punch a hole in the center using the Crop a Dile.
·         Add brad though all layers of fabric and add pin back.  Put the tines of the brad through the center hole of the pin back and set.   Hope you enjoyed making this beautiful flower pin.

Birthday Box:

·         Heat up the glue gun.  Place a small dot of glue onto the silicone craft sheet and place your flower on top of the glue.  Hold down a minute until the glue has set.  If you need to glue a spot or two more so that your flower stands up well, do so.  Set aside to cool.
