Jazz up your projects with Pins

Pins can make for a really cheap and easy embellishment.  Best of all they are easy to customize with beads, sequins, and more!  Our designers have some inspiring custom creations to share with you today - be prepared to say WOW!

Practical Scrapper Carolina used Darice beads to create the pins. Here's a close up:

Practical Scrapper Michelle used beads and buttons to dress up plain pins.

Practical Scrapper Cathy....I wish I could take credit for these gorgeous handmade pins, but they are made by a friend of mine, Mary Livermont from Pierre, SD!

Practical Scrapper Amber Goble used money to make this pin for a giftcard holder.

Practical Scrapper Kerri used floral corsage pins to create her ribbon/pin embellishment.   She created bunching on one (accordion folding ribbon on one pin, alternating the gathering from one side hem to the other).  She then, used a second pin and pushed it through the gathering on the back so a pearl would be on each end.
