One of my favorite things in preparing for the workshops is coming up with the tablescape and little appreciation gifts for each of the ladies. Sometimes the ideas I start out with kind of evolve organically and turn out even cuter than I imagined.
These paper nests definitely fit into that category. I knew I wanted to make the little flower pins but wasn't sure what I wanted to put in the center and then it hit me...make them into little nests.
Aren't they cute? And they were so simple to put together. I just made miniature paper blooms out of old dressmaking pattern paper (you know, the kind you fold like a fan and then separate into flowers), added a bit of moss to the center and hot glued a speckled egg. Then I added a pin fastener to the back and voila...an adorable paper nest pin.
I promise to take pictures after I've set the table for the party to share with you soon. Have a great weekend!
