Valentine Barrette Bling!

I've been inspired lately to do new things with my scrap supplies. For Christmas, I made Soph one of those giant flower barrettes that seem to be all the rage, because, really, they're super cute and I had everything on hand.

Here she is with Daddy and Andrew on Christmas eve sporting her awesome new barrette:

The best thing about it was I could personalize the barrette to fit the holiday - for Chirstmas it was sporting a 1" brad that said Merry & Bright.

I blinged up the same barrette in honor of Practical Scrapper's blingy challenge for the week and switched it around to a Valentine's Day-theme with some Stickled edges on my red flower and switched to a glittery heart brad for the center.

Here's my little ham is sporting the fabulous new blingy version:
From start to finish it took me about 5 minutes, including rifling through my flowers to find the perfect combo, popping the brad through the layers, hot gluing ribbon around an alligator clip and finally, hot gluing the flowers to the top of the barrette. Plus, I didn't have to spend the $15 I would have had I bought it in a store.
Gotta love that, right?!
Be sure to check out all of the other awesome creations that the Practical Scrappers Design Team has been up to this week!
