The red pin at the bottom right just above this line was bought from AfroArt and inspired me to make some others from reused plastic bottles and other things.

Hello ladies and thank you!

Brinja – You don't need to ask! Have fun.

These are so awesome. Do you just cut them out with normal paper scissors and punches?

Karen said...

Hi Maitreya,
For these pins I just used my paper scissors but after all the cutting, the plastic handle cracked! I didn't use punches – the smaller shapes are plastic chips and tile spacers. Probably you'd need a heavy-duty punch to cut out the plastic. It'd be great to know if it works.

Me encantan tus creaciones! a mí también me han entrado ganas de reutilizar botes y ponerme a diseñar pins tan fashion como los tuyos.

Saludos!
