I-Top Intensive Day Four...

Welcome to day four of the Imaginisce I-TOP intensive where we are showcasing the many different ways in which the I-TOP can be used on your scrapping projects. Today our theme is jewelery and headbands etc...I decided to make some cute flowery brooches...




Products used to make centre brads - Brad Daddies and I-Top Tool


~ Definition of Brooch : an ornament that is help by a pin or clasp and is worn at or near the neck ~


Brooches somehow reminded me of what my Grandmother used to wear (old and vintage), yet very chic. 


For my project I purchased some already-made cute flowers, pulled out the centres (the part that is tightly packed together). Once removed it makes your flower look more open and flat. I covered some of my Brad Daddies with material and inserted it into the middle of my flower. I think it just finished off my project very nicely and gave it a more chic style to it. 


Now all you need to do is pin it onto yourself and you are good to go.



Stylish for any occasion, no matter what it might be...



If you hopped over from Erin Basset's blog, the next stop for you is...



If you're not participating in the hop, now's is the perfect time to start! You could win an I-TOP of your very own, along with all the accessories. So, don't forget, to be eligible for today's prize you must "hop" and comment on all three blogs AND the Imaginisce blog! 

Plus stay tuned to the Imaginisce blog on Friday for a grand prize!!   

Thanks for hopping on over here, hope you like my little project, and I look forward to seeing your beautiful brooches too...♥

  3. Very clever idea. I like the fact that you can make up several different colors of flowers and pick the one that matches the outfit or whatever your putting them on.
