Playing with glue and ink…
little Christmas project
got me excited about gluing cabochons to everyday objects and I’ve wanted to do it again. Recently I found more flowers as well as some bobby pins with glue plates on them. My daughter’s friend was being baptized so I tried my hand at a pair of hair pins, hoping it would make a simple but cute and useful gift.
A couple of months ago I experimented with my letter press supplies and made a bunch of these little cards with green chevron stripes on them, then had no clue what to use them for. I set them aside and after the glue dried on the pins I noticed the cards and wondered how they would look together. A couple of tiny holes were punched, the pins inserted, and another chevron gift bag was retrieved.
I think they turned out great! I love the purple and green together, and a cute card made the pins look more like a gift. The entire gift cost me less than $1.00 and I’m so pleased with how the package came together.
Wouldn’t this be a great idea for party favors at a birthday party, Christmas gifts for friends, or even an activity for girls to do together? I think we’re going to be making more of them, and soon!
