craft pins

Does any one have any idea how to make pins out of watercolor paper. I've seen them on several women and they told me they are made with some kind of paper. They are beautiful. Once painted there is a glossy finish put on. Would love to hear from someone who knows something about these.
Thanks

The only paper jewelry I know how to make are just made from art paper ( card stock or heavy art stock) that are cut and pasted together with decoupage meduim (MOD-PODGE). Two coats of mod-podge make them water resistant, hard and glosssy. You then hot-glue a finding to the back and volia! jewelry!

Hi Lifestar, thanks for your reply. When you make this jewellery do you paint your design with acrylic paints first?? Before the decoupage I mean.
Thanks

I'm sure you could do this with painted paper. When I did this craft, they had beautiful art papers available. Handmade papers, rice papers, papers with gold threads woven in them, papers that lookes like watercolored sunsets, etc....

We cut out shapes and layered them in patterns. Some women even rolled the papers on skewers to make little "beads" or spirals and attached them to the collage of the jewelery piece they designed. After the pins were assembled and the Mod-Podge was dried, they looked georgeous!

I think they would be equally easy for kids to do but would turn out less sophisticated.

I also would think they would need to dry thoroughly before decoupage medium was applied.

Sue L. You are a genius. Thank you sooooooo much. Sounds too easy. Have you made any of these pins???? Also I am guessing that E6000 is a strong adhesive, can I buy it a craft store? Thanks again for taking the time for me.

MrsPaul,

I buy my E6000 glue at Wal-Mart. It is the only glue I use along with Aleene's Tacky sometimes. It holds really good and is not that expensive. No I haven't made any of the pins yet. I just heard of them on this forum and asked around about them. Got lucky at CraftPals. Have fun.
