just a few days left-how are you coming-plz check in... Hat pin swap...Due 7/1/12
The first 3 hat pin swaps were a sucess, samswindle is not able to do the 4th round, so with her ok here we go again
HAT PIN/CORSAGE PIN EMBELLISHMENT SWAP
You can find allot of ideas on YouTube
Quantity: 5+1:--hat pins(the plus one is for the hostess)
For each spot, you will make 6 Identical pins and and receive 5 different pins back.
You will not get one of your own back, so make sure to make extra for yourself.
There are either the longer hat pins or the shorter corsage pins. The corsage pins usually have a bead or pearl already in place at the top which may help you get started.You can find the pins at just about any hobby store--florists would be a good resource for corsage pins too.
Be creative and use colors and beads that you love. You should be able to find inexpensive glass beads online or at any craft or even thrift store. You should also be able to find earring backs to use to keep the sharp ends of the pins from poking you, but they are not necessary.
It's not necessary to cover the entire pin with beads--usually just the top portion is covered with a small crimping bead at the end of the beads to keep them from moving, or (and the way I prefer) if you don't want to use a crimping bead, you can use small drops of Crystal Effects or something similar as a glue. Some advice from a previous swapper is in putting the pins together...it helps to glue ALL the beads to each other. Don't just put glue on the bottom bead.
No vendor product restriction
Due in my hands no later than 7/1/12, I will have them postal within 7 days of the due date.
Life happens I know that believe me, If you need to drop out that is fine. Just let me kow in plenty of time I cant and woon't PM everyone to see if you are still in the swap.
Mailing Instructions and return postage:
Put your pins wrapped in tissue paper,felt, or some type of packaging to protect them (and fingers) in a zip lock bag with the swap name, your real name, and your SCS name.
If you would like me to reuse your package then please send the equal amount of postage plus two stamps....Or send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case they are needed. I will return them if they are not needed. I would suggest using bubble envies so that the beads are not harmed in transit. Thanks! Keep in mind that some people do get creative with their packaging so please send at least a 9x12 envie for the return.
Canadian and Aussie swappers can send cash (your money or US currency) or US postage-whichever one is easier for you.
DO NOT send metered postage.... they only work for day of purchase!!
refer a friend and you'll both get a token of thanks
I'll go first!! I was so bummed when I had to drop out of round 3 because of surgery on my thumb. Could I have two spots please?
Thanks for doing another round. I really wanted to do this swap!
I have you on the list...I know I didn't think I'd be able to do round 3 because I moved from Mn to Ca.and all my stuff was packed and in storage but I decided to go ahead and buy the stuff and pins anyway (even though I had tons of pins made and in storage)
