Trinity Flower Hair Clips

by Amy Bowerman

I have been as busy as a bee working on new paper flower designs with the Trinity Flower Sizzix Die from Eileen Hull’s Picket fence collection.  Today I’m sharing my latest paper flower hair clip designs.  I love working with the Trinity flower and it looks oh so pretty in pink!

I’m finally going to bite the bullet and open up an Etsy shop.  I’ve had  many requests for paper flower hair clips and arrangements lately.  I hope to have my latest Trinity Flowers up in the shop this weekend.  One of these clips however, is going to a very special little lady…Eileen’s Granddaughter Trinity :)

The great thing about the Trinity Flower die is that you can use the components to make small flowers or large flowers depending on your project needs.

When it comes to making paper flowers double-sided paper is a MUST!  I love to use patterned paper for my flowers and play with the designs and color combinations.  For my latest paper flower design I used the “Sweet Nectar” paper stack from K&Company.  Such a gorgeous selection of pinks and reds offset by soft greens, yellows, and blue.

Aside from playing with patterned papers I change the look of my paper flowers with different bead and button combinations.  Mixing vintage and novelty buttons with sparkling beads and pearls gives each flower their own personality.

The above bloom looks oh so chic with a vintage silver and pearl button.

While this little lovely sparkles and shines with a mirrored bead atop a golden flower button.

Using the  small flower cut from the Trinity Flower die I created a tiny hairpin with Distress Glittered Petals (Victorian Velvet).

Placed atop a button and garnished with rhinestone trim this flower may be tiny but it’s sparkle and shine is anything but!

I can’t wait to show you some of the other projects I have in the works using Eileen Hull’s Trinity Flower Sizzix die.  I have so many ideas my studio is starting to look like a flower shop!

Have a flowery day!
