Hat pins are one of the many accessories in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I love how easy it is to add ribbon and other accents using them. Poking the pin through a piece of DSP (cut with the Two Tags die) keeps the embellishments in place.
Here is a close up of the hat pin. First I threaded on some Vanilla Seam Binding and 1/8" Lucky Limeade Organza. The key stamp is from the Sale-a-Bration set Elementary Elegance. It is punched with the Jewelry Tag punch. I used a jump ring from the Hearts Trinkets so it would hang from the hat pin. Lastly I added a Heart Trinket.
The ribbon accent is very easy. Thread a length of seam binding on the hat pin looping it back and forth. Once you have it on the pin, spin the loops slightly then push the whole thing to the top.
Here you can see the green ribbon looped back and forth before I moved it up. When it is slid up it looks like you spent a long time tying the perfect bow!
Welcome to my stamping and crafting blog. A few years ago I began stamping and have finally found the perfect hobby. I especially enjoy designing unique projects and creating one-of-a-kind gifts for others. I am a Stampin' Up! Demo for personal use only which means I do this for fun not a business. All products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted. Please contact your local Stampin' Up! demonstrator if you would like to order some of the wonderful products.
I am a homeschooling mom of three super kids (two now in college) and have a wonderful husband who operates a busy consulting business. We have a delightfully busy (sometimes crazy) household with lots of extra kids who hang out, multiple cats and an energetic golden retriever. Stamping is my creative therapy; my little piece of alone time. I hope you enjoy visiting.
