The second hairpin I made is a deep plum red aster with a fluffy millinery stamen center, gold millinery stamen buds and a red and gold folding fan.
I made the fan by designing and cutting out some textured red paper into a fan shape with a branch of flowers using my ever-so-useful Silhouette Curio. I then glued the red paper to some gold foil paper and cut the backing gold out by hand. I’m definitely going to be using this fan design again. I am really pleased with how the fans turned out, and would like to feature them in a larger design.
These pins turned out almost exactly how I pictured them, and have given me some great ideas for future pins and clips. If you like these pins, they are now available in The Shop.
That said, what kind of flowers would you like to see next?
