Wednesday Trends - Stick Pins

Hi there!! It's Candace, and I'm so excited to be the Trendsetter of the Week! 

Have you ever used stick pins on your cards? I see them used on lots of cards, and awhile back I started making my own. They are so easy to make! 

I did a video tutorial to show you how I make my stick pins. 

You will need the following supplies:
corsage pins
beads of your choice
Glossy Accents or Super Glue
earring backs

Start by adding some adhesive to your pin. Then, add the beads. Be sure to put adhesive in between each bead. Then slide on the earring back all the way and put the pin aside to dry. Pushing the back on all the way to the bottom bead helps the beads stay in place as they dry.

Here is a card I made using the Angel Mail stamp set. I added two of my handmade stick pins to it. 

 As a bonus, I’d love to give away some of my stick pins because I have more than I could ever use! To enter, just leave a comment here on this post. I’ll post the winner on Friday when I do my Anything But a Card post.

I hope you are able to make some stick pins of your own! I know you will have so much fun making them! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
