Push Pins with a Twist! WOYWW 165

Many projects have been stacking up on my work desk as usual.  Way too many diversions I guess! But the summer has been filled with lots of fun with family and friends!    However, after taking a look at Julia's desk over at stamping ground I was inspired to shift gears and work on some fancy push pins.  Julia mentioned some "ball headed" pins she purchased at her local gift shop and they look very interesting. Check out her blog HERE and see what she is talking about....very cute!
Today I'm sharing some handmade push pins created by using old bits and pieces of jewelry and found objects.  Just glue these little "jewels" to a plastic push pin...put them in a cute organza drawstring bag and give them as a gift!

(I just love my neat pin cushion made by my cool Aunt Claudette!)  Have a great week y'all!
