Vintage Rose Pin

Hello Peeps!! 
Happy Saturday!!
Today I would like to share with you a sweet little Vintage creation.
This little sweetie can be a pin, magnet, necklace charm or embellishment for a scrapbook page or card!  I have decided I will be adding a pin back, and creating a pin.
Here is what you will need.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Goodies
Art Glitter Goodies
  • Art Glitter Designer glue dries clear & fine tip applicator
  • Art Glitters # 295 ensalada, #142 coral reef, #267 cheeky pink and 193 Martha's yard.
 Other Goodies
  • scrap piece of thin cardboard (cereal box etc).
  • pin back, magnet or loop at top (to hang as charm)
  • glass sead beads, metal charms, pin heads and o-rings.
  • rose collage sheet

First you will want to cut yourself three 2" inch pieces of champagne netting.  I used the art glitter glue to glue the three layers together.  You will want to measure your scrap light card board piece to be about 1/4" smaller than your champagne netting.
Using a brush apply the designer glue to your piece of cardboard.  Then center it on your Champagne netting.  
I flipped my piece over and using the fine tip applicator applied the designer glue to the edge of my crochet lace, and glued it around the edges of my piece of champagne netting.  
Then I grabbed some of the baubles and buttons from the latte collection.
I used some eye pin heads and used them with the two round bead like buttons.
I strung a few beads and charms on some other eye pin heads.  I used the rounded end jewelry tool to close the other end.  I used jump rings and attached them by placing them through the holes in the lace (that is why I chose this lace).
I applied the moss leaves to the left and topped off with one of the latte buttons.  In the lower right I added another latte button, that I tied with the brown sugar bakers twine to create a cute little bow.
I cut out the collage pieces, and inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  
I used the fine tip applicator and outlined the inner part of the rose and applied the coral reef glitter, then applied glue to the outer petals and used cheeky pink, then outlined the leaves and applied ensalada glitter.  I outlined the text box with glue and added Martha's yard glitter, and then covered the piece with UTEE.
Then I glued the pieces in place on my champagne netting.
Here are a couple of close ups.

Once you are all finished, then you can glue on your pin back, magnet or loop.
I hope that you enjoyed my post today!!
