Push Pin Project - eat your heart out Martha Stewart

Despite her criminal tendencies, I love me some Martha Stewart, especially her line of crafting tools and embellishments at Michael's. Over the last few years I've been stock piling button stickers from her line. I  literally bought a pack every time I went into the store in fear that they would one day run out and my life would end. At some point I snapped out of this nutso behavior, and stopped buying once I had acquired 15-20 packs. Not something I'm proud of, but I want to give you a peak through the small window into my craft-supply-hoarding tendencies. ;)

I hung a bulletin board over the baby's book shelves for future pictures and artwork, and I wanted to spice up the board in some way. I decided to make push pins out of the beloved button stickers - and fortunately, the project took a matter of 10 minutes.

Directions: (take notes, it's complicated.)

1. Take two matching stickers and stick them together so it's a double sided button with no sticky side.
2. Pull out the glue gun.
3. Put a small dab of glue on a normal push pin and smooshed that bad boy to the stickers.
4. Voila - button push pins!
