Papertrey Make It Monday #61

 This week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey was to create a flower with any kind of non-flower die.  I've been wanting to make more little roses ever since I made these for last month's blog hop, so I pulled out my Simple Circles Die again and whipped up another triple rose hair clip for a cute niece of mine that lives too far away.  (Go to this post to see basic instructions on how I made the roses using PTI's Simple Circles Die.) My niece is such a bright, vibrant little girl that I wanted really bold colors for her hair clip.  I wanted to make the flowers a little more exciting since my niece is only 2, so I made them into flower balloons. (She loves balloons and her mom knows how to make balloons into fun different animals, hats, flowers, etc., so I thought my niece would enjoy that idea.) To attach the clip I simply cut a little line in the card with my X-Acto knife and slid the clip through. 
My niece loves dogs, so I grabbed PTI's Tremendous Treats: Valentine set. (I love that little dog, too!)  I used the X-Acto knife to cut around the little dog's head, so he could hold the flower balloon strings in his mouth. I also used PTI's Simple Circles Die for the scallop borders on the sides of the card.
Here's one more shot of the clip all by itself.
