Pins for Every Type of Valentine

The plan was to create an organization project. But I don't feel much like organizing.

I'd rather get romantic-like and look ahead to Valentine's Day.

So I came up with a slew of simply made pins for every Valentine.

I've used a variety of Punchelements from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts for the bases. (Only the round are currently listed on the site.) Not too long ago I scored a 1" round punch at the craft store so making these was super simple.

Paint the base, add sparkle, add image/sentiment, embellish and finish off with a pin back!

I've made them to suit just about every Valentine. There's pink and sparkly for the romantic.

And something glittery and red for the saucy types. There's a "Go Away" pin for those who would rather be left alone.

"I am crazy" for my buddy who says this is the reason she is single.

A number of the pins have images of Cupid and Psyche, a theme I think I might like to further explore some time.

A few of the pins are a little crass... but I like the way glitter and the indelicate work together.

Do you want to make your own? You can download a sheet of the saucy and silly, nice and naughty sentiments below. (Note: You may have to click for the full sized image.)

If you need a little more direction the video tutorial for creating these wee thing-a-ma-bobs can be found HERE.

  1. These are adorable! What great fun!

    (Oh, I tried to save your fab collage sheet - but when I tried to highlight it to save it, it just clicked forward to the next photo. Whatever am I doing wrong? Be kind to the elderly :P )

    1. Tristan - I had the same problem. Are you on a Mac? What I had to do: Hold down "control" key and click on the image above, then choose "save image as" from the drop down menu - name it and save to preferred folder/location on your computer.

  2. Love your Valentine pins they are adorable. Super job.

  3. These are adorable and the racier ones and "bad ones" (Pervert!!?) make me laugh like a silly fool. You are the best! xoxoxoxo

  4. These are so romantic and beautiful.

  5. Fun & cheeky! Thanks for sharing :)
