Die Cut Flower Pins

I loved the Koozi so much that I decided to make some pins.  I cut the flowers from the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die that is in the new Occasions Mini.  I cut the flowers from white felt.  I developed a new technique using reinkers and alcohol in a mini mister bottle.  It makes the most beautiful flowers that are lighter in the center and darker on the edges. I used an Antique Brad to put the flower petals together. The leaves are from the Island Floral Sizzix Die. They are colored the same way as the flowers. I added my own little flourish using scrap pieces of ribbon and a little piece of black tulle.  I think these pins turned out just tooooooo, tooooooo cute.  I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please take a second to leave a comment.  If you're interested in any of the dies or other supplies I used, please email me.


  1. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! The pins are way too cute. Are you planning to do a tutorial on these cuties too. I know I asked before, but do you stamp while you are sleeping (hmmmm sounds like a Stamping Video)? Love the pins.

  2. Lovely! Would like to know your technique w/alcohol & reinkers. Thew coloring is delicious!

  3. Wow, they are beautiful! Wonderful job in creating these.

  4. How did you get the color to be darker on the edges...spray it more than once? These are darling and I would love to know how you got that beautiful softness and shading in the flowers with the reinkers/spray.
