Hi there! I recently purchased on ebay some vintage plastic flowers like this

anybody knows a good tutorial, or also a so so one, on how to use them! I guess I'm  becoming a bit lazy... Cheesy

oh, those are so super fantastic! i'd use them on bags, as eyes on monsters, etc. do you remember the seller? i wonder if they had more....

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Those are amazing, good buy! I work a lot with seed beads, so I would bead some vines or a cord in funky colors then glue a pin to a flower to use it as both a detachable pendant and brooch. Chunky beads in coordinating colors could also go well. They could also make great asymmetrical earrings by themselves on posts. I would also glue them to hair clips and hairbands. I don't know much beyond jewelry, but I imagine you could glue them to anything (clothing, accessories, home decor, etc). I hope my ideas help get your creative juices flowing! Let us know what you make of them.  Wink

I want to leave this world like I came into it: screaming and covered in somebody else's blood.
