DIY Push Pins with DCWV

Happy Friday!  I'm doing the happy dance, I'm so excited for the week to end and I'm ready for some relaxing.  Guys, you know I'm a sucker for anything paper (of course) and office supplies.  Putting these two things together sometimes is pretty mind-blowing, well at least it is for me.  Today I'm partnering with Xyron and DCWV to create push pins.  Don't worry, if you don't know me already, most everyone can create my projects.  This one is pretty easy and takes no time at all, well except for drying time.
DCWV Creates amazing papers.  Ocean Wonder offers printed gold foil combined that with amazing ocean patterns.  When I first opened up this paper, I thought being under the sea, like you know that mermaid we all know.  

You only need a few items to get started.

1 1/4 inch Small Wooden Circles
Flat Push Pins
Permanent Adhesive
1 1/4 inch Paper Punch

If you don't have a cork board already, you will also need the following:
8.5X11 inch frame
Cork Board Sheet
Cutting Blade

1.  Adhere the flat push pins to the back of your small wooden circles and let dry for at least overnight.
2.  Using your paper punch, punch out circles to add to the front of your push pins
3.  Run your punched circles through the Xyron Creative Station.

4.  Add punched circles to push pins.
5.  Optional:  Add a touch of waterbased sealer to the top of each push pin if needed.
6.  To create a corkboard, just cut cork board sheets to the size of your frame with a ruler and cutting blade, remove the glass from the frame, insert the corkboard.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great time with this project.  Don't forget to check out DCWV and Xyron's Instagram pages for more crafting inspiration.
