Tape Measure Flower BroochI saw a similar brooch on Pinterest and decided to make a couple for myself and my mom. I love how it turned out!

Tape Measure Flower Brooch
 

Steps:

  1. Use a pair of wire cutters to cut the button shank off, if necessary.

  3. Determine how long each length of your tape measure should be, to get the look you want. I test fitted my button and decided on using 6 inch pieces.

  7. Bring the 2 ends around and into the middle, creating two loops. Use a needle and embroidery floss (3 strands) to sew the ends in place. See photo below. I chose to do two that showed inches and two that showed centimeters. Note: I tried using hot glue and found that it didn't adhere well to the surface. All of my loops popped apart. :(

  9. Arrange the "petals" on top of each other. Use a needle and embroidery floss (3 strands) to sew them together through the center.

  11. Apply E6000 glue to the center of the flower and to the back of the button. Let them sit apart for 2 minutes before sticking them together. Allow glue to dry completely before handling.

This is super cute! And yes, hot glue isn't the best thing for everything!! I might make one and put a miniature spool of thread in the middle!!
