cute felt clips

I made these for my niece's birthday. What makes them so fun is a combination of unlikely textures - ribbon, felt, and metal. They were super easy to assemble. All you need is felt, ribbon, single prong clips and buttons or other embellishments. Cover the clip in your ribbon of choice. Cut the felt in the design that you wish. I cut a flower and layered it with a pinked circular center. Then finish it off with some ric rac and a button or maybe a scrapbooking embellishment (the "b" is for Bella, but I think numbers, i.e. for their age, would also be fun). No sewing involved, I just used my beloved hot glue gun.

Voila.

I think I could even do these and that's saying something since I'm craft-challenged.

I like how you wrapped them in the bag with the ribbon. I'm making some bows for my niece- i may copy your gift wrap ;-)
