DIY pin badges
We’ve gone mad for accessories in the August issue of Creativity; flick through the glossy pages to make your own silk scarf, chunky necklace or delicious pin badges! Discover how to make two more exclusive pin badge designs right here, and make your denim jacket the envy of all your friends…
Cocktail glass pin badge
1. Use the cocktail glass mini die set to cut four glasses; one from Capsule Elements Metallics paper, two from white funky foam and one from kraft cardstock.
2. Trim two pieces of acetate to fit inside the glass aperture. Use a Sailor 2 In 1 Glue Pen to apply glue to the back of the Elements Metallics and kraft die-cuts, and secure the acetate in place.
3. Layer, sandwich and secure three of the die-cut glasses. Start with the kraft cardstock on the base, followed by the two funky foam pieces.
4. Create the olive and place inside the stacked glass recess. Secure a die-cut stirrer to the front of the glass, then glue in place on top of the other stacked pieces. Cover with a thick layer of Anita’s gloss.
Cute cupcake design
1. Die cut the cupcake dinky die from kraft cardstock, along with three different shades of pink, two shades of blue and white.
2. Use a glue stick to secure the kraft die-cut to a piece of white cardstock. Fussy cut around the edge.
3. In-fill the apertures within the die using the pieces from the die-cuts created earlier.
4. Once happy with the layout, stick the cupcake to a sheet of white funky foam and fussy cut around the edge. Repeat again with more foam and a final time with kraft cardstock. Apply a layer of Anita’s gloss over the top and leave to dry for four hours before adhering to a fastening.
