Frugal Finds: Bobby Pins

Welcome back to our monthly installment of frugal finds and do we have a "doosie" for you this month. Back in February when Christine, Erin, and I were trying to come up with what we wanted to do,  I posed bobby pins as an option.  I had just finished giving my five year old daughter an up-do for a "Fancy Nancy" birthday theme party she was going to and inspired me to try to use these in another way.  All thought it sounded interesting and what's even more interesting, are the ideas that we all came up with on how to use them.  A special thanks to design team member Liz for joining in with us!   Hope you enjoy all our bobby pin creations...

Practical Scrapper Erin used Bobby pins with rhinestone butterflies on them to make the bodies of her canvas butterflies. Just slip them over the canvas, and wrap the top pin with yarn or twine.

Practical Scrapper Liz made this simple Thank You card using bobby pins as a design on the puffy hearts. She covered the pins with micro beads and topped them off with a small sequenced flower.

On this layout,  Practical Scrapper Kerri painted her bobby pins white with white acrylic paint.  She then used them to create her journaling lines in the bottom right hand corner of her layout.

Practical Scrapper Kerri was inspired by the layout of this card from her online scrappy friend Cassie D'Ambrosio.  She then decided to add her own twist to Cassie's design my adding some more painted bobby pins and then embellishing them with some dew drops from one of our past sponsors The Robin's Nest.
