So this is what I made this weekend, I used my sizzix and cut out a bunch of different flower shapes in felt, layered them together, did some really simple stitching and put a button on each one, glued a pin back on and I got these:

There are 50 here (plus I made 16 more to send to my grandma for her to give out to her friends), I am going to give one to each lady at my work.
And then, I have had this bad problem saving every christmas card I have gotten over the past few years, well I managed to dent the supply a little and I made these to put the pins into:

First, those flower things are adorable..great idea!
and second...what an INGENIOUS idea for old christmas cards! I have this overwhelming need to keep all my cards and all I can come up with that i like is saving bits of old cards to use in scrapbooking. I dont usually like those christmas card ornaments and things like that...but the boxes! now THOSE are useful! How did you do those?

I agree- I love how simple & pretty the flower pins are and the pillow boxes made out of old Xmas cards is great! I think I'll have to learn how to do them & try that with a few of my presents this year.

That is a great idea! I love the flowers! I've been wanting to make some, but I just haven't gotten around to trying it yet. Yours looks awesome!

I always read cards over the trash can... I guess I need to start saving those because I love those boxes!!!

I knew I should have bought that sizzix I was looking at last night @ AC Moore. LOL.

What beautiful flowers... and an awesome gift!  Great job!
