I've got flowers coming out of my ears!

A few days ago I was bored.  It doesn't happen often, but when it does, I try and find something new to do.  I've had a Big Shot for a few months now.  Up until this week I had only run paper through it.  I decided it was time to run through something else.  I have tonnes of felt, so it was an easy decision to experiment with some of it.  I used my Flower Folds die, (found on page 160 of current SU catalogue), and ran a piece of felt through the Big Shot.  It cut it out perfectly!  So off I went... before I knew it I had cut out 14 flowers, each flower having 3 different sizes/coloured layers.  I then picked out my matching buttons, and started to sew them all together, and add a clip on the base.  One plus about being sick and stuck in bed on such a beautifully sunny day, is that I can photograph the clips on my bed in the natural light, and lay in bed editing them all and listing them in my Madeit store :)

Oh! And don't forget about the giveaway on my Facebook Page :)  Wouldn't want anyone to miss out winning this...
