Today's project isn't a card, it's something else, something I've needed for a while. I discovered the joys of making stickpins for my cards a few months ago but never had a nice home for them, just an ugly big green tomato pincushion. Yuck. So I finally did something about it. What do you think?
It started out as these pieces - the ugly tomato, and a vintage cut glass piece I found at a local antiques mall. I'm thinking it might have been the base to a punch bowl. I covered the tomato with a pretty floral cotton, placed it in the bowl, hot glued some pink pearls around the inner edge, then added a few more ribbons and embellishments, and voila, my new pincushion.
Feathers, vintage purple velvet ribbon underneath the wide lace ribbon with rhinestone ribbon at the top, a pink silk bow and a bird magnet complete the project.
Simple, yet very effective. Now to get the rest of my craft room redone so this actually can look NICE in it. But that's a project for another day.
Thank you for joining me today and I appreciate the time you took to do so.
