A couple of months ago I agreed to do a fun blog hop with some other designers and the folks at Buttons Galore and More… I love a good button, don't you?

 

With Easter just around the corner, I decided to make some Easter-ware for my kidlets. A couple years back I made a boutonnierefor my son Matthew, using paper flowers I created. Matthew is a mini rico-suave, dapper little dude, who regularly wears a blazer and shirt from a suit his grandmother bought for him last summer. I knew he'd be wearing that suit for Easter because that is just how he rolls.

After I took some photos of Matthew modeling the boutonniere (which took little to NO coaxing), he asked if he could keep it pinned to his blazer to use for Easter. Guess I scored a home run! LOL


Whether for a boy or a girl, this lovely flower pin is perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, or just spring! Here's how to make it:

Gather the following supplies:
