How to Make An Altered Pin Cushion

Hello everyone, Stacy here with a fun altered item for you today.  I love to use stick pins on projects, but did not like my ugly red pin I did what any normal person would, I altered it!!!

I started by placing the ribbon around the pin cushion.  This was very easy to do with normal little sewing pins.  A friend gave me these super cool vintage wooden spools so umm....yes had to use those also!!  I cut the strip of paper to wrap around it, then I placed some of The Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect on the middle of the spool, used a paintbrush to smooth it out and then placed the paper around it.  I also used the glue to place the buttons on top of the spool as well.

I used a die from Spellbinders for the dress, but I wanted to add a little bling.  This is where my handy little Embellie Gellie  came into play.

This made it super easy to place the bling in that small little area.  I finished off the dress by adding a little ribbon around it and tied a couple of tags on it.

Well there you have it, my cute little way to have my stick pins in arms reach on my scrap counter.  Thanks so much for stoppin by today, have a great day!
