Pretty Pegs!

The Charisma Cardz challenge this week is:


How could I resist?! I'd already made these flower pegs for Nikky to take with her as samples when she launched Sugar Birdies on Ideal World on Wednesday - if you watched it, you would have seen these displayed on a clear box, and Nigel the presenter quite liked them! But as I've not previously blogged them, I decided to enter them for this challenge!

I've printed various flowers from the cd onto card and also vellum - the vellum flowers have been curled slightly and overlaid onto the card flowers and I've added a matching button to each centre with jute string tied through the holes. Which is in keeping with the wooden peg feel!

I discovered the wooden pegs when I was looking for something else, and its funny how inspiration suddenly hits you!

On some of the flowers I've added a bit of extra doodling - either dots or a solid line in black ink or white gel pen.

And because I've sent all these to Nikky, I think I may have to make some for myself! Obviously would need more buttons too....!
