Crafters like to see the finished product and when it's up a bit higher it's easier to see and then everyone gets used to "looking for the pin with the card".
I adhered a 2" strip of the paper (cut 2x6 as the paper is 6x6) and then cut a piece 2x3. You don't see the join as I covered it with a big sunflower (from the back of the paper.
In fact it is 2 sunflowers, a bit scrunched up. Underneath the flowers is about 12" of the Misty Blue and Silver Twine - part of a great ribbon combo.
My friend Carla Blake make me a 12" pin that I loved so much... but for workshops I prefer the 9" tall pins. I get mine on Amazon. Here it is plain... you can see why I like a little decoration!
A fun workshop - we made Jar of Flowers cards, treat packaging and a Memories and More card - I'm doing in person and online workshops - let me know if you want to gather!!
Happy stamping, MaryKate
