Last Tuesday was the first meeting of the Kelham Island WI (KIWI) in Sheffield! It went really well, with a relaxed atmosphere, lots of new faces to get to know, and a really welcoming venue. We had a chef demonstration and barista skills on the menu, both of which were delivered by the talented Hayley of The Grind Café, and I was tasked with making name badges, to help us all get to know one another.
After a bit of fiddling around with items hanging around my craft stash, I came up with these simple and fun rosettes.
All you have to do is cut out a small card disc, glue a strip of ribbon into it, then layer up flattened out cupcake cases and doilies however you wish. Write your name on the doily - or a message of your choice - and tape a safety pin onto the back. Voila! Instant champion status! These worked well because the ladies were at my crafty table long enough to have a chat, but the make was super easy for those who feel daunted by crafts. Those who took part came up with some really clever personal takes on the design too!
