I look for new ideas everywhere I go. I saw these in one of my favorite booths. I already love old, seasonal postcards. I have quite a few christmas ones on hand. As soon as I saw these at the show I started looking for the christmas pins. I was able to get them for $1 each. A pin and a postcard...what a good combination.
The hankies tied to a wire tree was an idea I saw at a thrift store in The Dalles. I have lots of hankies and I put this tree together using red, white and green for our christmas bazaars. It turned out really cute. It would also be nice left up as decoration.
This idea was actually my sister's. She was in the process of making over cheap pins using newsprint. I never saw any of hers but in hearing the idea it sounded like a good one since these button pins can be found anywhere. I put the newsprint on then got stumped as to where to go from there. I finally decided on a holiday theme. I never know where the next idea will come from so I am always looking.
