The Cuttlebug Spot - Ouch! Hat Pins

It's Tuesday and that means it is time for The Cuttlebug Spot.  This week the challenge is to use Hat Pins on your project.  I happen to love using hat pins and it has been a long time since I had used any so I was happy to see this challenge. 

I used the adorably sweet image from The Greeting Farm. She is from Naughty or Nice.  I added glitter to her wings and halo, but it is hard to see in the photo.  To make the hat pins I used a pearl topped pin that I added beads to.  to stop the beads from sliding up and down the pin I used a stop bead that you can find in the beading section of a craft store.  Finally after placing the pins in the bow I took my wire cutter pliers and snipped the sharp end of the pins so there are no sharp ends. 

I hope you can play along this week.  You can link your project on The Cuttlebug Spot and while you are there make sure to check out the rest of the design teams fabulous creations.

I alos used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  It is a great sketch and one that I will be using again.Thank you for stopping by.
