Thank you! That's simple and inexpensive -- two of my favorite things. I really appreciate the help.
  I like to give out a little something each year, to friends and as a token to entertainers and characters who go the extra mile. 

   I like the concept for the rose token.  I've seen some similar bits at Hobby Lobby. I'll keep my eye out.

Well, I have the clear epoxy stickers -- I went with square that I'll turn and use as diamonds. I have the pin backs. I have the glue. I have the felt.

Just waiting on an artist to finish the logo for my book series, and I'll digitize it, print them out and make favors with it.

Does anyone know who it was who made the Tudor Rose favors and was giving them at the recent Kansas City Rendedezvous? I really should remember, but of course I don't. I need to know how they were made, since I want to make something similar.

the basic piece is an item from Spare.Parts called 1" Round Clear Epoxy Stickers.  She used photoshop to create the image and to this she applied a firm felt back with glue (like Aileens tacky).  The epoxy stickers have an adhesive back so she just attached the image/felt piece to it an hot glued a pin (you can get the pins and stickers I know at Hobby Lobby or most craft stores).

Let me know it you have any other questions.

Gotta get to Hobby Lobby-I have some glass version of these-but they are too heavy.
   Will your Lady be handing these out at DMRF next year?
 I don't want to duplicate anything she is crafting too closely. 
   I can make a significantly different version, perhaps with a thistle.    I'm fond of dangling bits that sparkle.

Played around with  leftover clay and beads from the craft room yesterday. Figured I'd give them out to kids.

I bet the kids will love them, also!  They're cute, and colorful!  :)

Bristol is our home faire, and we will be there 6 of the 9 Sundays.  We have favors, too, so anyone there those Sundays, we'd be happy to give one to you.  Now I only have to remember to take them!

I'll be at Bristol every weekend, both days. I love sharing, so if any of ya'll want a favor, PM and I can let you know my whereabouts.
Speaking of which: Less than 38 hours until Bristol begins! ;D ;D ;D

Well, Lady Renee, it sounds like you've given a good reason to aim for some Sundays for our future visits! Since I work alternate Saturdays (life in a public library), Sundays are sometimes easier.

I would love to make it to Bristol one year.  WHEN I make it (not if  ;)), I will definitely find you all.

Didn't see any RFMembers at Bristol on Sunday. Favors will return this coming Sunday to see if there are any takers.
