Here's what you do: How to Make Decorative Push Pins with Glue Dots

  1. Select the embellishments you want on your pushpins along with the size of Glue Dots adhesive. Craft Glue Dots are 3/8" in diameter and Micro Glue Dots are 1/8" in diameter.
  2. Press the pushpin onto the adhesive as shown. Use the wheel on the side of the dispenser to advance a Glue Dots to the front of the nose roller.  You can also press the embellishment onto the adhesive and peel the embellishment away from the liner to release.
  3. Press the embellishment firmly onto the pushpin and you're done!

Now your freshly decorated cork boards will look extra cute with decorative push pins. Mix them up or make a matching set - you can add any types of embellishments to your push pins using Glue Dots.

Happy organizing!
