My Glitter Geeks DT Project - Anything goes

Hello and a very happy Friday to you all!  Well over at the Glitter Geeks we have another fab challenge for you all this week.
The theme is
Anything Goes........
here is my creation.....

Hat pin holder...........

Which I made using these........

A cotton bud container and a polystyrene ball......and here's how I did it...

Cover the ball with tissue paper using double sided tape on the underside only

This is the side that will sit in the bottom of the container.

Cut a strip of decorative paper to fit round the sides of the container, ink the edges first then stick using double sided tape

Put some crumpled tissue paper in the bottom

Add pearl trim around the top edge

Cover the ball with lace using double sided tape, but make sure you stick at the bottom of the ball that will sit in the pot. If you use any adhesive anywhere else on the ball it will make it difficult to stick your pins in and out. Sit the ball into the pot

Cut out your chosen image and use pins to stand it on the ball

Wrap a length of organza ribbon around the ball, tucking any overlapping lace in. Tie a bow

Cut out three paper flowers and use stick pins to attach them to the front of the pin holder

Finally, stick in your pins

You can now store your pins in this ready to use them in your projects. When you pull one out make sure you hold the ball.

The decorative paper,image and paper flowers I have used are what I bought from the sponsor for this week
