This is What You Make....

When a certain 2 year old niece takes the lei from the dress up box and snaps the thread......Hibiscus Button Bobby Pins!  There will be about 24 total to give as gifts to little princesses all with unique buttons from my grandmother's collection.

These are super easy to make. 
You will need:
"Silk" Flowers  (trust me, these are not real silk)
Bobby Pins
Needle and Thread

Layer two flowers together and find a coordinating button to put on top.  Take one thread and make a lark's head knot on your bobby pin (you should have two threads to work with now).  Thread the needle with both ends of the thread and start sewing through the flowers and the button.......back down and through the bobby pin.  I did a lot of criss-crossing on the pin to make me feel better.  Fasten off and wear!
