Simple project #1: vintage button push pins

I dug through my collection of buttons, and after burning my fingerprints off with the glue gun, I came up with these...



A whopping 40 sweet and cheery little push pins.  (At any given time, I probably have no more than two things hanging on my bulletin board, but who cares?)

And then I got on a roll and couldn't help myself with some Christmas color inspired ones. 



Whimsical.  Vintage.  Charming.  Some of my favorite things, and definitely in keeping with my bright, colorful Christmas plans.  I think I'll keep a few sets tucked away for the times a girlfriend stops by with a gift and I'm completely embarassed, ahem, empty handed.
