If you make the pins out of fabric, please back the fabric panels with Ultrahold. What is Ultrahold? It is a paper back, iron on, fabric adhesive, sold in art, craft stores, Joann, AC Moore, Michaels is the cheapest if you use their 60% off coupons, when available, I've bought a 5 yard roll for $4.40! Its also available at Walmart, or online, Hobbycraft and Barnyarns in the UK, as well as Amazon.com. Ultrahold is acid-free, in red and white packaging, great for no sew projects. Its made by Therm o Web HeatnBond. The president of Therm o Web recommends their HeatnBond Lite or Featherlite paper back, iron on adhesive, for sewing, also sold in the stores mentioned above. A 5 yard roll yields up to 96 pin patterns! So, you can have pin making party, or craft time with older kids and teens, making these jewelry crafts! You can print the patterns directly onto the paper side with your inkjet printer! Just cut letter size sheets, up to 32 from a 5 yard roll, and run them through your printer. I have YouTube tutorial video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rSx4Z7r9w0 or on my channel at http://youtube.com/user/fabricatedframesCom.
You can make these out of paper & mat board or cardboard, and just hot glue a metal brooch pin back centered on the back, your choice. You can laminate the paper on both sides with self adhesive laminating sheets, or clear vinyl. Use the patterns as a guide for sizing, adhere / hot glue the side flaps on the back side, and cover the flaps, to give it a finished look, then hot glue the metal brooch pin back in place.
There are holes that you will hole punch ...or, if you have arthritis or have another hand mobility disability, you can use pointy, small, embroidery like scissors, to poke and cut out the circle holes, that print on your patterns. Fiskars has a non-stick pair perfect for multi discipline crafts! There is also a pocket that you will have, by leaving the top or one side open, connecting / gluing / adhering / sewing 3 sides. There are 4 panels per pin, 2 for the front, and 2 for the back, with 2 holes centered, holes are 1 1/4" on center, or apart from each other. Again, use a good quality hole puncher, not the cheapy dollar store kind, or pointy scissors, not your good embroidery sewing scissors.
