Brooches From Oopsies

This post is about making something usable from your craft mistakes, which we all know we make from time to time.   Sooo, today's theme is brooches.
 What do you do if you mix up too much resin?  Pull out a mold and fill up the cavities until you run out of resin.  These resin hearts were allowed to harden and then I slapped some scrap book paper on the backs with some modpodge.  
 Once the modpodge dries, gorilla glue a pin on the back.
 This crocheted flower was the beginning of a pot holder that, at last, never came to be.
 Some felt and another pin and I now have an adorable daisy for a dress.
 Still more resin filled molds?  Before the resin sets up add some fish aquarium pebbles (that I forget to put in my Pocket Aquarium).  Once the resin has set up, paint the backs and attached more pins
See, with just a little extra work, some of your oopsies can become useful too!
