First of all Happy New Year!!!
Secondly, Happy Dragon Appreciation Day!! Yea. sounds like a weird holiday I made up? I assure you I didn't! (smile) While most of the nation is off celebrating Martin Luther King Day in the United States. I am getting creative with some pins to exchange in a swap! When I first heard about the planner pin swap, I didn't even have a planner! But hey, how many times have us ladies, bought accessories, well before we had the outfit, hmmm ?!?!? Check out these little cuties!!
My supply list includes some free digi images I found on google and from one Yam Puff! I didn't have any special heavy card stock, so I used copier paper. Once my items were printed, I went over the pages in clear gesso. After they were dry, I watercolored and used gel pins to my hearts content to make them look nice. While my images dried...
Colored Digital Images
Small pieces of chipboard
After gessoing the copier paper I decided I wanted the pins to be a bit for stable. Since I knew I wanted to use the felt. I brushed some Helmar Stiffener on it and let it dry to the touch. Make sure you lay your fabric pieces on some kinda wax paper, to avoid sticking.
While that dried, I reinforced my dragons with chip board and a little Super Tac!
I hid the chip board with felt and a bit of fabric glue. The Fabric Glues awesome and it got all between the spaces on the chip board pieces.
I cut the felt, leaving a small border around the dragons, flipped them over and added even more fabric glue with a paper clip. I was very generous with my supply of fabric glue, so I didn't have to drop anymore. Topped the clip with a small felt heart on back to hide the clip!
Here are a few close ups of the clips!!
Had such a joy creating these & it's still not to late to plan for 2017! Get a planner, buy some GLUE and make some clips!! :)
