Using ribbon, pearls, and remnants from my wedding dress's lining, I made this brooch for our ring girl to wear at the ceremony. It was a quick and simple (and last-minute) project and I was happy with how it turned out.
I pulled pages from a vintage Life magazine and an old Reader's Digest, cut them into circles (trying to avoid any anti-love, anti-happy text), and stamped them using a custom-carved heart stamp made by Olga of Cupcake Tree (whom I highly recommend). The museum that I worked at this past year owns a button-making machine, and were kind enough to let me use it for this project (I supplied the button materials). I'm hoping guests at our library-themed wedding will enjoy them.
