Poppies, flowers and butterflies - off the page...and on

Finally Friday - I hope you have had a great week!  It's Diane today with a few projects to share.  I tried some new ideas and used some of my Vintage Poppies to embellish items other than paper projects.

The gray Vintage Poppies add a lovely finishing touch to this silk travel jewelry roll.  I took out the pearl brad in the center of the larger poppy and used a blue gem brad in a shade to coordinate with the silk.  You can sew the poppies to the fabric or use a fabric adhesive to attach them securely.

I also revived an old black hairband by adding three red vintage poppies with red vintage jewel brads in the centers.

The sparkle of the jewel brad makes the band more suitable for a fancy occasion.

I placed the poppies toward the front of the band so they would be more visible when it is worn in the hair.  You can also attach the poppies to barrettes or  hair elastics for  special events.

The velvet poppies are so versatile.  I used one of them with a 3D vintage flower brad and some velvet Ric Rac ribbon to decorate this note cube.  You can read more details about how I made this on my blog at THIS POST.

This little paper purse uses some vintage jewels and a beautiful flared flower as the focal point.  I used the "Forever Young" Cricut cartridge to make the purse and there are some helpful tips on assembling the bag on my blog at THIS POST.

I think these butterflies from the April Kit of the Month are beautiful - and I just can't resist the sweet bag that they arrived in!

I popped one on this card to make it even more colorful.  It is fun to have the scale a little off - either that frog is far away or the butterfly is gigantic!  I used the "Give a Hoot" Cricut cartridge for this card and you can read more about it HERE.

Here is a closer view of the butterfly.  The large gem that makes the body is a perfect shape and so sparkly!

I always enjoy working with the Creative Charms products - they can be used in so many ways.  If you would like to win some packages of flowers, bling and other wonderful things, I invite you to come join the "million plus hits, thousand plus posts and third blogoversary celebration" on my blog Capadia Designs.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and have fun crafting!
