Awesome Pincushions!

Pincushions! I love these!  They would make a great gift! I made 12 for a Crafty party I had...these were the party favors! And yes, they were a HIT! I filled some with pearls, beads, crystals and sparklies  with stick pins and clutches for fabulous card making! Start with these: Ball Mason Jars...1/2 pint size Elite collection...wide mouth! They are so cute because they are so squatty! Best place to buy them: of 4 for $3.79 Everywhere else (including Walmart) are more than a dollar each! Gather supplies: cork, scissors, hot glue gun, jars, cotton stuffing, black paper and cute fabric I use a layer of cork and hot glue it to the lid... makes for a tight pin fit! lid, cotton, fabric...sandwiched...and flipped over hold in place, it's pretty puffy... start hot gluing edges down until it's all glued... then cover it with a black cardstock circle...or "eyeballed" circle like mine! And...Ta da!
