My coworkers are kind of awesome. As such, I like to give them a simple little gift every year. Just something of nominal value that I (usually) made with my two always crafting hands. Last year I did cute scrabble tile ornaments, so this year, it was time to do something different!
This year, I pulled out my vintage jewelry stash and turned some of the earrings and small scatter pins into push pins for our bulletin boards! They turned out very cute, and for a touch of personalization, I incorporated one scrabble tile push pin with their first initial.
All it took were some jewelry nippers to clip off the backs of the earrings or pins. I used Crafter's Pick to adhere a push pin (from Staples...a box of 200 was $5) to the back. The result makes me so happy!
The final touch was to present them in a sweet way. I printed out a little sheet of labels to simply staple on cork coasters (available at every craft store under the sun). Easy peasy!
Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting!
