Hair Slides

I found myself with a growing bag of hairslides that I recently picked up in the sale, and a large bag of yo-yos and little felty flowers. The idea was to make them into pairs of hairslides.

In order to keep them together I punched a little heart shaped hole in some lovely vintage looking nursery rhyme snap playing cards.
This resulted in a pile of little hearts that are quite sweet, I will find a use for these some time.
Some of the larger flowers were too big for hair slides so I added a safety pin to the back and made brooches, to be worn or added to bags.
Hairslides:



Goodness knows what I will do with all of these, but once I started I got a bit carried away!

Back Soon ♥

They look really good on those cards, you have been a busy bee!

I once used a load of Trivial Pursuit cards for some vintage brooches.

Kandi well done and i am sooo jealous they are gorgeous :-) i love those vintage cards what a fantastic way to use them. My little girl would love those slides as they are so girly x x

I love the idea of punching the holes into the cards - when I did mine I cut slits into the cards but shapes would have more fun AND you'd have the hearts left to do something else with - brilliant idea :)
