Hello my friends and Happy 4th of July ( well tomorrow). I just had to share with you a brooch that my friends/customers JoNell made to give to her friends and co-workers. Can you image getting this beautiful brooch just in time to wear tomorrow? I think I would have squealed out loud.
Here is the how to information.
JoNell used burlap as the medium for her brooches. She cut the burlap into heart shapes using SU framelits (cool huh?). JoNell then applied Versa Mark ink directly onto the burlap and then sprinkled clear embossing powder onto the hearts, shook off the excess powder and then heated it with the heat tool. Embossing the burlap makes it stiff, YES!!!!. The last step is to select ribbons and embellishments and then hot glue then onto the hearts. Some of the embellishments JoNell used have been discontinued but I listed the other items you can still order as a good substitute.
GREAT job JoNell your friends must have loved their gifts. Especially since these brooches are made from the heart.
