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!

Bells & Boughs Victorian Christmas Card

Okay, here’s another reason not to miss my Fall Rubber Stamp Festival each year!

This year, the set was ‘Bells & Boughs‘ and all projects featured that and the ‘Deck the Halls‘ designer series paper from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday mini catalog. This was one of the four projects.

I am absolutely in LOVE with the new ‘Crumb Cake’ paper and ink!  Doesn’t it look fabulous with those colors?
