PTI Make It Monday #104 Handmade Pinwheels

Howdy Bloggers and Bloggettes! Since I received my yummy Papertrey Ink goodies in the mail this week (insert squeals of joy here), I decided to play along with this week's MIM. :) I'm quite rusty in the blogging department, so I'm trying to do more challenges to get back into the swing of things. I'm in love with all of my new toys, especially my new barrette dies! So of course, I had to make a felt pinwheel barrette. It was a given. I see that someone else had the same idea, but "great minds...", RIGHT? ;) We're not going to talk about how her's are prettier. No, we are not. Lol. But seriously, they are. Go check them out! Thankfully I also received the Framed Out #12 die because the square was perfect for a tiny felt pinwheel to decorate my barrette. I only made one, rather than a pair, because my niece parts her hair to the side and only wears one. My barrette inspired a card as well, even though they do not COMPLETELY match. Shhh...don't tell. I didn't have the perfect matches in felt and Cardstock, but hopefully that will be rectified next order. Thanks for stopping by!
