I'm so excited about these... I've been drooling over those Flapper buttons ever since I saw them but seeing as my dog just broke her elbow and needs orthopedic surgery, it's going to be a while before I can get them. I do have a button maker (I have four, but I used my 1" for this), though, so I made my own! Well, pins instead of the kind of buttons you buy at Joanne's, but you know what I mean, I hope.

I was inspired by the flapper shirt buttons but also by a couple of photos of vintage handmade flapper face pins I came across.

My sister and I made 4. The sequins is under the mylar layer, but the little bump in the middle is these teeeny tiny rhinestones my sister had in her "Sparkle Stash" of loose rhinestones.

Here's a shot of the back so you know what kind of button I'm talking about. Smiley

ETA: I drew the girls faces in PSP7. I made them vectors so I can change the colors of things without too much trouble if I waqnt to change their eye color, hair color, skin color, etc.

those are really cute!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

Thank you! I don't normally put holes in my clothes by wearing pins, but I think I just *have* to put these on my jean jacket! Smiley
