Hat Pin Embellishment Tip

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!
