DIY // Floral Pins for Your Best Gals

DIY-FLORAL-PINS-MINTED-1Flowers make the best gifts, don’t they? They’re a site for sore eyes and an instant happiness boost (that has to be scientifically proven, somewhere right?!)  They’re not, however, cheap.  Those fluffy hydrangeas and delicate garden roses come with a pretty price tag, so instead of an over-the-top bouquet, we made these sweet floral pins that pair perfectly with one of these chic Minted classroom cards that you can share with a dozen of your besties without breaking the bank! Attach them to your jacket or wear them in your hair.  Either way, they’re bound to brighten someone’s day!  Here’s how to make your girlfriend’s swoon…
