For this challenge, I knew right away that I wanted to make a home decor to show my pins.
I really wanted to use the jar with bugs inside. So I used the 12x12 "little wonders" cardstock from the Springs Things collection and cut the jar. There were so many ideas running through my mind on how to use this jar.
I had to think of a way to have the pins stay in place. What better way than to use a cork. I was able to find this 12x12 cork which is perfect for this project. I then used the 12x12 "sweet shoppe stripe" cardstock from the Cream & Sugar collection and cut the shape of the jar. I really didn't want to cover the bugs but the stripes with all the beautiful colors will go better with all the pins that I have and what I will collect in the future. I glued the cork under the jar and then added a pink cardstock to cover the cork.
Then I made a flower using a pink cardstock. I added another flower in the back using the "spring time spots" 12x12 cardstock from the Spring Things collection. For the flower's bud I used a button. I added a pink twine around the neck of the jar with a mini pink clothes pin.
For the bottom of the stand, I made another flower using turquoise cardstock. To add more design to the flower I used the acetate bee and the word "hello" The pink doily is also placed under the stand and the flower for layering.
Coffee and Donut Pins. Aren't they perfect for each other?
