Gingersnapper Spirit Blog Hop

This is so exciting ... the Gingersnapper Spirit Blog Hop for the 3rd Annual Copper, Ginger or Rust challenge . To visit all the blogs participating in the event, please follow the link HERE. You will find an amazing array of work and, of course, we would like to see your creations for the Copper, Ginger or Rust challenge!

For this challenge I created a little piece which started life as an ordinary clothespin
The first step was to take the clothespin apart. I then covered it with musical note paper which I had received from my dear friend Faerwillow a while ago, it was perfect. The edges are inked with Adirondack Rust.
Having seen rolled flowers all over I decided to embellish the clothespin with a rolled fabric flower. This was such great fun ... it was quick and easy, a tutorial can be found here! The fabric is soft polyester silk in a ginger-coppery tone with black ornaments. I added two leaves cut with PaperArtsy diecut from copper glittercard. The finishing touch is a little sparkly button. I love the flower and there is already more fabric lined up for production!

Now you know what I created, just have a look at all the other amazing pieces and show us yours, Petra.
