Fall Stick Pins

Hello everyone.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have a "Little Thing" project that turned out to be so fun and pretty.


The project was to make stick pins for a swap over at CraftHappens.ning.com.  Here are the rules:

Make a 2.5-3" stick pin
Use at least 4 different things on your pins
Choose any color
Make 3 sets of 3 pins
(They can be the same or different, but have to be in the same color scheme)

I made my holder from die cuts from the "Fall" Tim Coffey set by K and Company.  The little tag made by stamping the sentiment from the K. Andrew Designs "Fall-o-ween" stamp set in Black Soot distress ink.  I then inked around the edges of the sentiment box with Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves distress inks.  Be sure to check out the video for a full tutorial on making the pins as well as the little holders.


I am linking this project to the following challenges:


Also, don't forget about the current "Anything Goes" challenge over at 3 Girl JAM.  You can link up a project for a chance to win some prizes.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
