Lapel Pin with Hero Arts Butterfly Dies

Hi, Friends, it’s Chark today with a felt project. I needed a new pin for my coat after the Santa pin came off so I decided to try making a butterfly pin. After die cutting butterflies from felt in different colors, I put two together and added some rhinestones.

You can sew or use fabric glue to adhere the butterflies together for these pins. I suggest hot glue to attach the pin back, since it just needs to be strong and not pretty.

I love trying different materials with the dies and have used wood paper, acetate, felt and cork. So far, they all cut beautifully with the Big Shot.

Hope you’ll try some fun die cutting soon and remember, you can enter that or any other Hero Arts project in our January Anything Goes challenge here.

Happy Tuesday!

Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here with a super cute Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace project for you!! I have to admit, I had so much fun with this months challenge, Anything but a Card.  It forced me to step out of my comfort zone.

Take a look at what I created for you today:

I love how this necklace turned out.  So pretty and elegant at the same time.

When I was contemplating on what to create, I looked at all of the Hero Art stamp sets that I own.  When my hand fell on the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set, it hit me.  The tiny feet will fit inside the circle frame of the Heart Key Tray. Which I thought was perfect since it had two hearts on it. One for the mother and one for the baby!!

Here is how I created this necklace:

  1. I found a scrap piece of watercolor paper that I created awhile ago.
  2. I stamped the tiny feet on the piece of scrap with Hero Arts Black Ink and let it dry.
  3. Then I added glue to the back of the glass piece and pressed it on top of the tiny feet.
  4. Then I cleaned away all of the excess glue with Q-tip.
  5. Once the glue dried, I cut around the glass.
  6. I placed a piece of super stick tape inside the heart tray.
  7. I added the glass piece to the tray.
  8. Then I added the ball chain to finish off the necklace.

So what do you think?  Wouldn’t it be nice to either get or receive a necklace like this. I hope this month has challenged you to really step out of your comfort zone and use your crafting supplies to create something other then a card!
