Winter & Christmas pin cusion w/ stick pins


I recently did a pin cushion and stick pin swap. My partner for this swap is Purpleluvnscrapper. Here is what she sent me. It is just adorable!!! I would never have thought to make something like this.

We were to make a pin cushion with at least 4 stick pins and have one cricut cut somewhere on the cushion or pins.

Here is what I created for my partner, glad she took a pic of the cushion I forgot to:)
Recipe for pin cushion:
a round container, mine was an ornament
piece of fabric of your choice
ribbon, I chose gold ric rac
round styrofoam ball and batting
future floor wax to coat inside
Powder Keg Glitter Glitz Pine Forest glitter to coat it
Recipe for stick pins:
two 3 inch white pearl floral pins & two 3 inch faceted floral pin form Joann's
copic markers in dark red(r89) and pale yellow (y11) to color each pearl
3 poinsettas-red, pink and yellow
Cricut cut from Winter lace cartrider Accent 4 at 1 inch, 1 1/4 inch and 1 1/2 inch
