A fun twist to your typical card using Spellbinder's Hatpin Bezels!

Hi, Everyone!  Janice here bringing you a quick and easy way to spice up your card making!  ;)  Sometimes I get in a rut and all my cards start looking the same.  I started thinking of a way to change things up a bit when my eyes landed on a dowel rod in my craft room--boom, it came to me!  :) 

Here is what I came up with.  It may not look that different at first glance but it is not your ordinary card.  Check it out.


To see how I put it all together, go to the Scor-Pal blog HERE.  :)

To see how I created my fun wand, keep reading! 


Ok, so to start out, you need a Spellbinders Hatpin Bezel (I used the silver, circle hatpin) and a dowel rod.

Decide what you want to go in the center of your hatpin and seal it in with some resin using the manufacturer's instructions.  I chose to stamp a cute sentiment from Flourishes's "Tiny Flowers and Tags" stamp set.  Once I stamped it, I cut it out using the coordinating Spellbinders Bezel die, Circles One, then adhered it inside the pin. 


Once the resin in the hatpin is dry, affix the hatpin to the dowel rod. I used Beacon's 3-in-1 glue and some adhesive ribbon to hold mine in place.  Simply, squeeze out a line of glue the length of the hatpin rod, place the hatpin on the glue and wrapped completely with the adhesive ribbon.  Once the hatpin is encased by the ribbon, you can create the bow where the hatpin and dowel meet.

Here is the view from the bottom of the hatpin.


I glued the flower embellishment using hot glue and only adhered the one petal closest to the bow as not to impeded the wand from sliding into the pocket.

And that's all!  Fun times with Spellbinder's hatpins!!!

Have a wonderful day!
