Elegant Spiral Brooch and Matching Gift Card

Handmade Gift Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Ribbon and Spellbinders Elizabeth Border - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there friends, today I’m sharing an ensemble brooch and matching gift card. As you see, I was on quite the gift making spree but all the items I made were fairly easy.  The brooch was initially going to be another ornament just like the one from earlier this week that you can see HERE but a moment of serendipity created this and led me down the road to make the brooch.  Score!! Since scarves are so popular right now, that means brooches are too!!

For the card I wanted to clearly show the pattern on the ribbon so the recipient knows the brooch is handmade – a piece of ribbon is taped across two corners.

My card is 5-1/2″ square then I used Spellbinders Elizabeth Border Strip for the center between the two pieces of ribbon. That combination is then topped with Spellbinders Pierced Squares.  Lastly, my sentiment is mounted on Spellbinders Petite Pennants.

For the brooch, I used the same ribbon and once folded and made into a circle, nestled a pearl button cluster on the inside and mounted a pin back on the bottom so that it can be worn.

    I love blue and brown. This couldn’t get any prettier. I so love it and needed to see it. Since it’s World Card Making Day I’m just now looking for specials and all these companies don’t have any customer support on the weekends. Ugh! Okay, let me go back and look at your creation so I can get in my happy space, again.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, There you go again–diagonals and squares so different from florals and ovals but absolutely lovely. Your mind works in wonderful ways. But you skipped over “once folded the ribbon.” Even if you did a tutorial with the folding of the ribbon, don’t know if I could do it. Overall a beautiful gift that ties so beautifully with your card. All those details and all on the mark. So like you. Thanks for the pretties. BarbaraReplyCancel
