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.
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.

(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 )
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.Delete
