I cheated and used some promo pins I got at a concert/event. But you could easily use bottle caps or anything else you can come up with. Please try your own variations on this and share them! I'd love to see what anyone can come up with.
Gather your materials you'll need to get started.
Here's what I used & examples of what you can use:
â€¢ Promo Pins [try bottle caps]
â€¢ Mod Podge [try any form of sealer/glue]
â€¢Sheet Music [try magazine clippings/old book pages/or print out a small picture or pattern online]
â€¢Fabric Scraps [a small print seems better]
â€¢Tweezer/Pliers [anything to hold it while you paint]
â€¢Paint Brush & an unused Makeup Sponge [an easy thing to use would be a sponge brush, but I didn't have one]
If you use bottle caps there are those little pin backs you can get at the craft store. You could hot glue those on. Or just glue on a magnet to the back of your bottle cap and make put it on your fridge. Or make a set and give them as a gift!
If you're using a pin like me, take the pin out of the back.
Cut a circle about a 1/2 an inch bigger than your pin/cap and cut notches in it like I did in the picture.
Brush on some Mod Podge.
Place your pin/cap in the middle and fold over flaps like so. Pressing them in as you go. Smooth out any bubbles and try and get it on there tight. [careful as to not tear the paper if it's thin]
Once it's nice and snug in there brush some Mod Podge on the back.
I held it with the pliers and brushed Mod Podge over the top. Then used the sponge to smooth it out.
Don't forget to get the Mod Podge on the edges!
Let dry. Add your pin/magnet to the back. And they're ready to go! Pin them onto your favorite bag or vest. If it's a magnet stick it right on the fridge! Take photos and share your variations.
