Pam, I am not sure how much help I can be because I have not seen a tutorial. It is really pretty simple to make these pins. You will need stick pins, you choice of length and clutches for the end. Some are sold as a set and some aren't. You can purchase them at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or on line at a number of places. Here is a link to one style. You can get pins that are flat on top instead of the loop.
Stick Pin

You will also need beads of your choice. These are sold at many places also including the above mentioned sources. Crimp beads and a crimp tool or pliers. Sometimes I use glue on the bottom bead instead of a crimp bead. You have to be careful that the glue doesn't show. Crimp tool. This is like the one that I have.

Slip the clutch off the pin, slide your beads on in the order you like put a crimp bead on last and close it with your crimp tool or pliers, place your pin on the card as desired and replace the clutch.

Here is an example.

I hope this helps.
