artful thursday - pretty name badges



only 6 glorious weeks until silver bella!!! eeeeekkk!
my list of things to do is getting shorter with each passing day. this week's goal is to get our swap treats finished. karla and i are hosting our first swap, the love chapter swap. we are just giddy, and sooooo pleased that some of the girls chose our little swap to participate in. we are providing handmade tote bags for each girl to collect the ornaments. these totes needed name badges, so here's my solution.

start with a poker chip.
circle punch some pretty paper. (melody ross paper - hobby lobby - gorgeous!)


i used some rub on transfer letters and a black ink pen to add the girls' names.



then i cut circle shapes out of scrap fabric, lace, and tulle. stacked 'em up and stitched 'em together.


hot glued the pin back on, and.....ta-da!



one more task scratched off the list!!! whooohooo!!



happy day, friends!!!
thank you so much for stopping by!

  9. Promotional name & magnetic badges may not seem like an interesting factor to discuss,but they can be a very interesting aspect of your company.
