EVERYWHERE a pin cushion. More pin cushions today. Up first today is a little felted birdy on a traditional flower shaped cushion. A while back I posted a felted pumpkin and the link to purchase the kit I used to create it. I took that lesson, and some wool roving from Hobby Lobby and made this little robin. I think it dressed up this basic pin cushion well. Also added a few Tim Holtz vintage look safety pins an it seemed complete. The circular pin could actually hold a gift card, place card, or any kind of greeting, but for now I like it empty.
Another little pin cushion that I put together using the same basic cushion pattern is this pink fleece felt piece. This went together in a snap with two dies from Die-namics. The rolled rose and small hearts. A few CTMH stick pins and I was in love! (again)
Finally today I want to share a project that I did almost a year ago, but haven't gotten around to posting. It includes a little cushion, but also uses my old standard scrapbooking papers and embellishments.
I started with a plain white box with a hinged lid. Cut paper to fit just inside the top bottom and sides.
Added a little paper to the inside and created a little envelope with burlap paper.
The super easy square cushion fit down into the center. A button is holding the ribbon that will tie the gift card into the box.
I felt much better about giving a kind of impersonal gift card when I was able to present it in this little box.
Are you on project overload? I will try to slow things down, maybe not three projects at once next time. I'm just so happy to be back to blogging that I can't share enough.
