{Book-Page Brooch}


Since it was my turn to host Book Club this month, I thought it would be fun to make a little gift for my book club friends. A Book-Page Brooch seemed appropriate.

I found this great tutorial at Under the Table and Dreaming on how to make beautiful book-page rosettes. They were surprisingly easy and fun to make!

I added a couple of leaves, hot-glued some white felt to the back, then glued on a pin, then another small piece of felt to finish it off...and now it's a cute little brooch!


I "served them up" alongside Barefoot Contessa's to-die-for Lemon Bars (they're thick and really tangy).


We had an enjoyable evening discussing The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton...I highly recommend it!



Happy First Day of Spring!
