This was very interesting. We used to do similar things with cups. That is until it was shared that the fumes you are smelling are toxic. It is still a cool idea for those that are ok with the fumes and are in well ventilation. The main reason I decided to write was the way she put the pin on the felt made it impossible to correctly pin it to anything. She instead needs some pin backs to use or the safety pin that is made for friendship pins as they let you take the pin all the way to the back. The third choice would be to glue the pin or melt the pin to the flower and cut a slit in your felt for the pin to go through. This would make a clean pretty back. And the back of the pin would not show.

Can you tell me where you got that rubber finger cover from. I have been looking for one so i do not get burned. Thanks so much
