Collectible Pin Challenge: Display Idea with Traci Penrod

Hi everyone!  It's Traci and I'm back to share another project for my craft room with you.  As you may remember from my last post (wall calendar with Daily Doodles), I recently moved into a new craft space and I'm having lots of fun adding things to my walls.  So when the pin challenge came up, I decided to create some wall displays that I can add to as I collect more pins.
This is a 12x12 display.  I started with a piece of white card stock and layered the following pieces on top: Pistachio Gingham Prints 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" Spring-A-Ling double-sided card stock 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" Bubblegum Gingham Prints -- cut on my CAMEO machine.  (This is an offset of the cutting file). White card stock -- cut on my CAMEO machine.  Link Square Lace Background 11" square May Flowers Dot paper -- cut into 2" squares and adhered behind each square. I adhered everything to a piece of 12x12 corrugated cardboard cut from a packing box. Once I pushed each pin through the paper and card board, I attached the pin's original card with the pin backing.  This is so I can remember the names, but also so that I don't lose the original card.
I added my display to a  white 12x12 shadowbox frame .  I used this one because it has adjustable inserts to change depth as needed.
I went ahead and made two more frames for my room because I know I'll be adding more pins to my collection.  
Thanks for checking out my project today!  Be sure to check back next week, when the team will have more project ideas for these adorable collectible pins!
