Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to my bog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.
I am still in quite a great deal of pain, but managed
to put this tutorial together while the pain killers do their work.
I sent one of these similar brooches to a blog 
friend and she asked about a tutorial.
So hear we go.


This is what you need.

2" circle of card and felt
Brooch catch.
8 two inch strips of ribbon about and inch wide.
Some lace.
Some string of beads.
Hot glue gun.




You now have your brooch.

I used some snippets card for the circles of this
brooch and some snippets ribbon too. 

Thank you for your visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following

Good evening Jenny, sorry to hear you are still in pain.
Have you tried taking Calcium & magnesium that is good for calming the nerve endings. Will not kill the pain but should help.
Brilliant brooch and great Tutorial
Hope you get relief soon

I have been thinking about you Jenny. Sorry to hear that you are still suffering and wish you well. What a gorgeous brooch and a fab tutorial too. I don't own a hot glue gun but should imagine quick dry glue would work as well!? xx

So sad that you are still suffering so much Jenny and I do hope those pain killers kick in soon.
A really beautiful and feminine creation, love it! But I do love brooches which aren't in fashion right now, allegedly, I hope she loved it Karen x
