I have taken part in a couple of stick pin swaps. They are great fun to use and ya'll know I love a swap. I have started putting a few in my cards. Gotta love them.
I have been asked how do you send them to others. Well like anything I scoured the internet looking for videos. After watching a ton of videos, I took a little of this and a little of that and did my own thing.
Here are a couple of the finished stick pin holders.
I did 2 different sizes, depending on which size of the stick pin. So here is what I did with the short pins...
Here is what I used
A strip of paper 2" wide and 7 1/2" long.
2 Facial sponges
I scored the paper at 2", 2 1/2", 5 1/2" and again at 6".
Fold on the score lines.
Take a the facial sponge and cut them in 1/2...cutting it on the short sides.
Glue the facial sponge into the short pocket in the folded cardstock.
Embellish as desired.
For the longer stick pins, I used the same process but my cardstock was 9 1/2" x 2" and I scored at 1 1/2", 2", 6" and 6 1/2".
