Twilight Pushpins

OK, this project was totally just for fun. I had an old Twilight calendar sitting in my studio for the last couple of years. I wanted to repurpose some little images that were on the back cover. So I decided to use some glass tiles and turn the photos into pushpins!



Now please excuse the quality of this photo. It is very difficult to get a good clear photo of these 1" glass tiles. Between the texture of the glass and the small size, I can't get a perfectly clear shot. But I think you get the idea.

I just took my pictures and cut them out with a 15/16" square cutter. I used silver tape (for Memory Glass) to adhere the photos to the back side of the glass tiles. Then I stuck upholstery tacks to the back of the tiles with hot glue. Probably some E-5000 glue would have been a better choice, but I was in a hurry. LOL

They're cute little Bella and Edward pushpins that are now on the bulletin board in my office. :)
