Do-it-Yourself Stick Pins

There are two green stick pins in the Inspiration Kit...so we decided to link our favorite tutorials for creating your own beaded stick pins.

One more tip...if you have the straight pins with an ivory or white ball on the end, you can easily re-color them with a tiny drop of Alcohol Ink or color them with a Copic Marker.  The beaded stick pins are very easy to make, and are the perfect addition to a scrapbook page or card.  Have fun!!!

  1. I make these and love them. I am in a swap on the cricut messageboard for them! I just don't know how to put them on a layout/card for fear of sticking someone! LOL! I also love the DIY Vintage brooches from yesterday! Great job ladies keep it up!

  2. I just love this site! Keep doing what you are doing! Every site I'm on talks about Counterfeit so you are definitely filling a need.
