Belated Birthday "Button"

At the beginning of the month (august 2nd to be exact) I celebrated my 43rd birthday. wah wah wah....{loser button noise}I know I'm old....

Turning 30 was HARD 43 not so hard and I had a great day with my family. Anyway, I'm heading way off topic.

I made this fun birthday Rosette...

Super cute right? Best part is you truly could make these with a bunch of scraps...
all you need is 2 circles cut from chipboard - scrapbook paper and bits of ribbon and I used a cupcake sticker for the center.
folded ribbon and dangley ribbon make for a super sweet frill.

finishing it off is simple - a little bit of felt please :) and you could either add a pin to wear this baby or you can do what I did and add a mini clothespin so that you can add it to a gift bag or even clip it on to your shirt and using the clothespin makes it re-usable and more versatile to place on various items.

I'll be posting a tutorial soon for making more of these. Come back soon.
