Christel over at Scrappin' Sista hosts a monthly swap. I took a couple of months off, but I am finally back on the swaps again. This month the swap is to make two stickpins. I really enjoyed this because
you can only put a few beads on the stickpin and still have room on the end to stick it on something. I went with a vintage look for my stickpins. The clear crackle beads reminded me of the glass doorknobs that are seen in heritage homes. I did make a matchbook cover to hold the stickpins. One of the youtube videos I watched showed the crafter making matchbook covers for her stickpins and they looked so nice, I wanted to make them. The matchbook covers are 2 inches wide and 6 inches long. I scored the paper at 1/2", 3", and 3.5". Next, I cut ivory cardstock at 2" by 2.5" to stick the pins into. I folded the 1/2" over, placed the ivory cardstock into the valley and stapled it down. I stuck the stickpins on the ivory cardstock and closed the cover. I hope you enjoy them and I can not wait to get my swaps in exchange.
