Vintage Pins Made with Hot Glue

Last year I started working with Surebonder, the makers of amazing glue guns and wonderful glue sticks!  I've always loved their products, but I finally got to meet up with the powers that be and they challenged me to use their hot glue in unconventional ways.  Since January I've been hunkered away in my craft lab going nuts!  These hot glue brooches were really fun to figure out, and when I did I couldn't stop making them.  A smooth silicone mat & some favorite images and you're on your way to having a jacket full of funky pins!  Now, a lot of people ask me about wearing hot glue jewelry in the heat and my answer is always is, "Unless you live on the sun, you'll be just fine!"  Low temp glue melts at 250° and  high temp glue sticks melt at 400°.  That's pretty hot, baby!  Figure out different ways to use things you already have and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
Some of my favorite images!
A little ribbon bow looks amazing on these!
You can grab pearl trim almost anywhere!
A super smooth silicone mat is crucial to being able to see the images!
Here's what I used:

Even strips of scrap fabric make terrific little bows!
