Paper Pin Step-by-Step Instructions

Bells & Boughs Paper Pin Technique For the first time I have done a photo step-by-step on how to make these pins.

In the past I have done a video (seen here) which is about 20 minutes long, but it you need a ‘quicker fix’ feel free to download the step by step (click on the graphic below).

The bells and ‘holly & berry’ images are from the ‘Bells & Boughs‘ stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Mini Catalog which is only available for a limited time!

The materials I used for this project include:

Four 2 ½ x 2 inch Vanilla cardstock  (for stamping the bells)
Four 2 x 3 inch Vanilla cardstock (for stamping holly leaves)
Black StazOn (#101406)
Stampin’ Write Markers:  Real Red, So Saffron, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, Certainly Celery, Old Olive

    Amy, you are the “Queen” of pins…I remember from a waaaay back! As are all your projects, this one is just gorgeous! I love the way you thought to shape the bells and leaves…that just makes it into an art piece rather than a 2-dimensional paper craft! Thank you, too, for your fabulous instructions…for free! Much appreciated!
