I am interrupting the show of card projects to show you some more of the metal pins I made using my Big Shot, a die, and some metal flashing material for roofing.
Originally, I was asked to make tags to be tied onto some starter plants that the committee was buying for each volunteer. As I was making the tags, they didn't seem that great to me. The committee had asked that I stamp something "kiddie lit" on the tags ..ie images from children's literature. Well, the only thing I had of that nature was tons and tons of Winnie the Pooh Stamps.(my fav!) I didn't actually have enough time to color in each of the ninety outline images so I decided to make pins to put on the tags too. I dropped them off at school on Tuesday (Monday was the holiday and I am not usually there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) because I wanted them to have enough time to tie the tags onto the plants for today. When I got to school this am, I went to the cafeteria to see how they looked. Imagine my amazement when I didn't see any plants. Where were they? Then I noticed that the pins were on the table in front of each seat. When I saw the committee chair, I asked what happened to the plants? She said they ran short on time and decided the pins were enough. Boy am I glad I didn't make ninety tags to hang on nothing!!
This was my favorite of all the metal pins.
Hope you like it too!!
