Brooches from Chipboard

Hi everyone!  I am still looking at ways to use fabric on Tando Creative Chipboard :-D  This time I have taken 2 butterflies & 2 leaves and made them into brooches.



Each piece of chippie has been covered with fabric.  I didn't trim too close as I wanted a frayed shabby look to them.   On the butterfy  added an extra layer of fabric between the 2 chipboard pieces with some fibre, beads & wire to decorate.  For the leaves I kept to the 2 layers adding beads, paper rose, wire and some lace round the edge.

Thank you for taking a look, HUGS xxx
