My patio Gardenia Tree bloomed last week! I had 4 open and lots more buds ready to bloom! The fragrance is awesome! I picked one of the blooms and brought it inside the kitchen to enjoy!
Out of the beauty came the idea to make some Double Spiral Flowers using the Big Shot Die and white felt. You can make 2 flowers out of one piece of felt. Each flower is 2 Spirals.
I will make a video when I return from Salt Lake City- Stampin' Up! Convention 2014.
From here I decided to make it into a pin for a jacket, sweater, purse, or scarf. I bought the pin backs at a big box store. After that.... I made several for Addy to wear on her head bands. Then followed 2 toned and patterned felt with solids... You know I just went a little bit crazy!
Pin back with a felt circle to finish it off neatly.
The final look for today is the addition to the Facinator. Donna has supplied several of us demos in the past with these beautiful facinators. They have an alligator clip on the back to easily wear in our hair. It is amazing how one head piece can be picked out of a crowd of 4000 at Convention! We kept our facinators from last year and we had a Spruce-n-Up! party to fluff them up with more feathers and we all made the Double Spiral Flowers to doll them up.
