Surface & Accessories
I purchase these ball knobs from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s in a size 1 ¼ or 1 ½. You will also need some silk flowers such as roses, mums, daisies. I lean towards the less expensive because they come a part easier and do not usually have any hard centers, the knob will sit in the center better. A small circle, (2 in) of felt or cardstock for backing. Ribbons, charms, buttons, clothespins, pin backs, you can embellish a little or a lot. Have fun with them.
