    I absolutely love the satin ribbon dahlia! I enjoy wearing lapel pins on my suits, but this is just the thing for spring! Unfortunately my daughter is a little too old for the bow tie headband (but boy would she have loved it – I spent lots of money on similar ones in the stores), but I’ll keep the directions for my granddaughters. I have my fingers crossed. And the Korker is just right to make for party gifts for our annual July 4th party. So glad I found you website!

      Hi Kim! You are so right! This fun flower would look amazing for a spring lapel pin! You could make it in lots of different bright colors too! Have so much fun making one or two! I am so glad you found us as well and hope you have a wonderful day! Michelle 🙂
