My niece was here for a crafting day recently and we got distracted by shiny objects... One thing led to another and we found ourselves making pins. I should say SHE was making pins, I was making A pin!
We used davy board as the base for most of them and added in liberal amounts of old inchies, charms, stickers, rub ons, gold trim, coins, rhinestones, nail head stickers, patterned paper, jewelry findings, old chain, old broken jewelry, addage tags, metal embellishments, shrinky dinks, bottle caps, and tissue tape. While I made my one pin, she finished twelve.
This is mine which has a plexiglass top on it and then a key charm and a broken earring fixed to the front. It is 1 1/2 inch across. They all have pin backs on them - held with E6000 glue.
Her collection is quite eclectic. Steampunk, Sherlock Holmes and Vintage are more her style. Most of hers were sealed with two to three coats of UTEE. These squares are all 2 inch.
These two are some inchies I had left over from 2008.
Then she made a couple of companion pieces by combining four inchies on each base.
This one was made from an old shrinky ding charm I had that someone gifted to me.
For this one we flattened a bottle cap as the base.
Can you tell we had tons of fun?
