A Card, Altered Flip Flops, and a Bookmark - Guest Designer for My Creative Time

Good morning, this is Cathryn from In the Pink.  Today I am guest designing for Emma!  So happy to help fill in for such a sweet lady!
I have a bunch of projects for you today, all with at least one thing in common.  They use some of Emma's dies to make flower embellishments!

My first project is a card I made with the Fun Pockets stamp and die set, the Floral Sentiments stamp set and the Flower Petal die.  I used an epoxy paperclip and the Flower petal die to make a much prettier clip to put on the pocket.  It can be removed and used separately.

The next projects are made from plain flip flops I purchased at Target.  I dressed them up with the Flower Petal and Scallop circle dies and some felt from Papertrey Ink.

I used some heavy duty quilting thread to sew each flower together and then onto the flip flops.

I made these flowers using the stitched circle die.  I cut the felt at each scallop about 3/4 of the way to the center.  The middle flower has one layer from the Flower Petal die on top.

This project is a bookmark I made using a Jumbo paperclip and one of the same flowers from the above flip flops.

I used a needle and thread to whip stitch the flower on to the large clip, then I fabric glued another felt flower over the back to hide the stitching.

Here are the paperclips before I added the flowers.

Supplies I Used:
Fun Pockets stamp and die set, Scallop and Stitched Circle dies,
Flower Petal die and Floral Sentiments stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Lost and Found Two paper pad  -  My Minds Eye
Fine Linen Card Stock and Holiday Mix Vintage Buttons  -  Papertrey Ink
Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz and Blueberry Sky Felt  -  Papertrey Ink
Paperclips  -  Walmart
Flip flops  -  Target
3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue  -  Beacon Adhesives
Pearls from my stash

That is it for me today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and found some useful ideas!  Thank you to Emma for creating such fabulous products for us to use!  Have a great day!!!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
