My go-to Bridal Shower favors are my big sugar cookies. I love them and so does everyone else.
But as a wedding gift, I am making the cookies for their wedding favors. Well, now what am I going to make. Given the bridal colors of pink, orange and brown… I searched and searched for ideas.
And then I came across these pins….
They are from Linda and Harriet’s, they are paper and made from scraps of their stationary. They are also $24 a piece. While I loved them, I knew I could make them… to match the bride’s colors and add a twist of my own.
First, we had to locate chipboard in the bride’s colors.
I used my Cricut to cut flowers in different sizes.
Once the flowers were cut in 3 inch, 2 1/2 inch and 2 inch diameters, I glued them together from largest to smallest.
I also bent the petals of the pin upward.
Next, I found these cute buttons.
And glued one in the middle of the flower.
Next I glued a pin back to the back of the flower. And while these pins are very cute, I still wanted a cute way to present them.
So I found the tiniest flower pots and Styrofoam balls that would fit in the flower pot. First, I had to spray the white Styrofoam balls green.
After the balls had dried
I lined a flower pot with a bead of hot glue and placed all the balls into the pots.
Next, I twisted half a pipe cleaner into a flower stem. Pinned the flower onto one end of the pipe cleaner. Punched a hole into the Styrofoam ball and put the other end of the pipe cleaner into the pot and Styrofoam ball.
And every table place had a pin and pot.
I think everyone liked their flower!!
I am happy the way they turned out and would totally make them again.. how cute would they be for a baby shower?
