Black and white flower brooch tutorial


Making this Black and white flower brooch is not hard. The hardest part is to find a silk flower that will not look too young looking.
I am going for the classy and grown up look.


I cut the stem with scissors. I made sure that the back was flat enough to be a brooch.


Hot glued a piece of felt and the brooch element.


Beautiful with pearls. Any color top would look amazing worn with it!

Hey, I don't get here often, so this is a thrill for me. Nice blog! In "my" country we'd say "Classy"!

I had to get off twitter, face Book, etc., etc. It was not easy. However, I cannot join your giveaway, but that is FINE. Reading and Seeing your blog is enough 'giveaway' for me!

PEACE!

Dear Frenchy, I sincerely want to thank you for not only this pretty project, but all the lovely items you share with all of us. We all appreciate you so much and are better off for "knowing" you. I hope to someday begin a blog myself. If you should ever plan to visit Las Vegas, Nevada please feel free to email me ahead of time so that we may get together for an hour of cheerful friendly girl chat. Your friend, Christy (DecembersRoses@gmail.com) P.S. I do have another email address that I answer to on a regular basis, so if you want that email address let me know sooner than later. Thank you again Frenchy!
