This is so exciting! These are my very first video tutorials!! Yes, I had to make my own camera stand but I think it worked out okay. lol The tutorials are on how to make the flower push pins. You can make all different kinds. These are just the ones that I came up with.
1) Rosebud Push Pin
4) Dainty Flower Push Pin
Part of this flower I got from Rhonna Designs. Check out her blog for more info on making these gorgeous fabric flowers
5) Black & White Flower Push Pin
Saved my favorite for last...hehe!! =)
If you have any questions about any of the flowers or want to let me know what I can do to better my video tutorials then leave me a comment. Feedback is greatly appreciated. =)
Cork Board Tutorial
I used Krylon Interior-Exterior Ultra-Flat Black spray paint.
I sprayed them outside on a drop cloth. I also spray painted the back edges as well. It dried fairly quickly too which was nice and had great coverage!
Once dry, I used Mod Podge Gloss and coated all of the edges. You want to try and do very even strokes when using Mod Podge because it can leave streaks.
Mod Podge has dried. I had to eye the cork board while tracing the lines. The inside of the tray was very intricate. It definitely wasn't perfect but it works. An ideal Frame would be one with square or circle interior. It's much easier to cut your cork to fit.
I attached my hard wear with hot glue...of course lol.
Glue in your cork. I used 3 layers of cork because I accidentally bought the wrong thickness. Oh well, you live, you learn! =)
Adorn your new custom made push pin flowers!!
Thanks for checking all of these out. I know it was a long one. I hope you made it through and most of all I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Have a great day! =)
