hatpins for using on your cards
Hi all i have just put a tutorial on my blog of how i made the hatpins that i have in my blogcandy. so i thought i would pop it on here too [attachment=2:36ctnv2n]1.JPG[/attachment:36ctnv2n] assemble the tools and findings... flat nosed pliers ,a spacer bead[i used a daisy spacer[top right] ,a crimp bead [middle right ] a small gold bead.[bottom right] an eye pin [50mm] and a selection of beads [attachment=1:36ctnv2n]2.JPG[/attachment:36ctnv2n] starting with the daisy spacer thread your beads onto the eye pin in the formation you like [attachment=0:36ctnv2n]3.JPG[/attachment:36ctnv2n] push them all to the top of your eye pin and add your tiny crimp bead so it is the last thing you put on the pin....then take your pliers and squash the crimp bead flat so it keeps the beads in place on the pin...if the beads move a bit which sometimes does happen you can add a dab of clear glue to keep them still.the eye pins are not sharp on the ends so you can either glue them on your cards or use a paper piercing tool to make a hole for them to slot into.... easy peasy... you can also use flat headpins or the ones with the pretty ball on the end ,depending on what look you are after have fun tracey x
