Stick Pin Swap

Hello!  This project is for a stick pin swap I was in via the Cricut Circle message board and I have been waiting to share them with you for quite awhile!  Everyone should have their boxes back now so today is the big reveal day! I was in Group 2.

So here we go!  Each was wrapped in a clear bag.  When you take it out of the bag, it looks like this:

Then you untie the ribbon and enjoy...

The card opens from the middle to reveal the pins:

Close-up of the pins:
The pearl topped pins were from Bargain Bill's, the green beads were from Hobby Lobby, the graphite beads and clear beads from Michael's, and the ribbon was from my stash.

All of them together before I sent them off:

This swap was a lot of fun and the pins I got back were beautiful!  Thank you to our wonderful hostess, JJewel!

I entered this into the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge, which is to use our newest Cricut cartridge, Out of Character! This is the enjoy cut at 2", with all layers out of different color greens.  I embossed the front of the card with a Cuttlebug folder.


  1. I don't know which I like better - the card or the pins. They are both just plain FANTASTIC.
