Holiday Pin Giveaways

Saturday, you'll find me at the Christmas in Suamico Craft and Gift Expo at the Suamico Ale House from 9-3. Even better, you'll find these little gems in a gift bag if you attend:

Stamps: Every Little Bit
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Many Marvelous Markers, Crystal Effects, Snowflake Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, pin backs, clear stones

Pretty cute, huh? What about these?

We were asked to provide 200 items for gift bags. Never one to back down from a challenge, I knew I could whip up a cute item or 200. I made these last week- in two nights. They are very easy, but very fun. In fact, one lady who sells purses wanted one right away!

To make these, I first had to think it up. I looked around my room to find something I had multiples of to make something with-- the stones stood out. I made magnets before, but decided this time of year folks like pins. I bought tiny pin backs at a local store. Everything else I bought from myself--a perk of being a demonstrator!

I first chose 6 designs and placed them on my largest clear block. Pretty smart if I do so say so myself! I could stamp 6 at a time to cover a 12 x 12 paper!

I used  my markers to color them in.

Then, I punched them all out with my 1" Circle Punch. Next, I used a dab of Crystal Effects on each one to glue the image to the stone and the punch out to the back. Finally, a little line of Crystal Effects secured the pin back! I let them dry upside down.

The next night, I packaged them all up--a coupon, business card, and a pin in each bag!

Happy Stamping and see you at the Fair!



  1. LOVE this idea. Especially if you need a LOT of something. Nice job, cuz.

  2. Power stamping -- I'm all for it! A customer just asked me to design a pin for camp. By golly, your idea is good enough to CASE!!! Thanks for doing all the hard work (mostly).

  3. Great idea putting them all on one block! I will have to remember that idea :)

  4. Very clever, stamping multiples at once!

  5. Very cute and clever..hmm may have to use this for a 3D challenge over on Stampin' Addicts!

  6. I predict a surge of pins being created very soon! Such great ideas are meant to be CASEd ;) Thank you for sharing this awesome idea!
