Cuttlebug Spot - Ouch!! Hat Pins

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

I love being on the Cuttlebug Spot design team, you get taken right out of your comfort zone. March will be no exception. Accessories and Embellishments are the theme and to start off, we have been asked to make a project using Hat Pins. I managed to find some at my local craft store, but they just had a pearl on the top. So I've added some beads glued on with clear gloss. And to stop anyone stabbing themselves, I popped a little pearl bead on the point. Doilies  are also very popular at the moment so used my Cricut to create my own.
