To make these badges: Cut a piece of patterned paper to 2", trim one edge with decorative scissors, score every 1/4", accordion fold the stip, adhere the ends together, then press it flat and glue it onto a scrap piece of round paper. Punch a scalloped circle from coordinating paper and add a piece of large Flair on top. Accent the edge with a Delight sticker. Hot glue pieces of ribbon and Bits with notched ends behind the badge. Hand sew a straight stitch across the bottom edge of a 20" piece of tulle, pull the thread to gather it, press it flat, tie off the thread, and hot glue the badge to it. Slide a pin or clip through the back to make it wearable.
Little kids, and adults alike, will love sporting one of these handmade badges at their next birthday party or other celebration! You can also glue them to the tops of dowels as wands or stick them in a decorative vase for decor. What else can you think of to use these badges for?

Caroline declares, "I love Flair! They are super fun and super cute and add a great touch to a layout or card! I love layering with them and that's what I did on these two cards. I layered the sentiment on the Details cupcake on the birthday card and I layered on top of a Delights flower and a Remarks sticker on the Wish You Were Here card."
