Becca Bit: Every Time a Bell Rings, an Angel . . .

…gets his wings.   Hi there blog friends!   Today, a change of pace for me.   I have not done a Becca Bit in quite some time so today I have one to share.  You haven’t seen this card, it’s one I made at a club meeting so I pulled it out of my stash so that I could actually have something to set my Angel Pin on to show.  So, why make this a Becca Bit?   There are questions that I get over and over again, which to me means I really do need to supply some more info.  The question that I get all the time is about the stick pins that I use – what are the supplies and where do I get them.  Recently I made a Pretties Kit for a friend of mine and included some of the basic stuff to have on hand to make pearly pins and boy, oh boy, did the questions come flowing in!

A week or two ago metal findings were on sale at Hobby Lobby so I put them on my list  to stock up on and to see if I could find something different.  I found these sweet, sweet angel wings.  I was puzzled what I might do with them until I found some cones and it struck me that I could put them together for an icon to represent an angel.  (Click on the thumbnails to see picture at regular size).

See all the variations you can make using different supplies?

One of the most frequently asked questions is where to get the pins.

These pins are from Joann’s, from the notions section.

The three pins on the right are from Michaels or Hobby Lobby found in the wedding section. Be sure you take a coupon – they are called corsage pins and they are pricey – $5.99 – $7.99. The pin on the left came from Joann’s and is extra long – I love these. Whisper (I don’t know why but they are cheaper, $2.99 – $3.99, and they are sooo long. They can be found in the floral section – not the wedding section).

Here, a Tim Holtz Pin, bent to make a halo and a Making Memories Pin.

Lastly, here are the supplies I used to make the Angel Pins (purchased at Hobby Lobby – on sale at half price, of course). Please note that the bottom of the pin is simply an earring backings. All these things are inexpensively found at your local craft store and will give you supplies to last for a while or make a gift kit for friends :-)

Hope you enjoyed these tidbits.  See you soon!!

    Beautiful card and angel pin. Great information, TFS!ReplyCancel

  • AnitaFebruary 13, 2011 - 2:19 pm

    An earring backing. Why didn’t I think of that? I had been looking and looking for pins with the “safety closure” for the bottom of the pin and couldn’t find them anywhere.ReplyCancel

  • MaryannFebruary 13, 2011 - 2:27 pm

    They´re all just gorgeous Becca and as usual, you´ve done a wonderful creation again hun. These are some of the very few things, we´ve been able to find here for a very long time, except from the needles, but then we just use, what we can find for them. But I never thought about the idea of the earringpins to make a stopper to it, that´s a really great idea I think, thanks sooo much for that hun.
    Have a wonderful week ahead now and take good care.ReplyCancel

  • Jean HempelFebruary 13, 2011 - 2:29 pm

    Thank you Becca.. I have been making them just hiding the bottom of the pins, but I have tons of ear backings and they are fairly cheap at HL or Michaels so I shall be getting them… I do love making them and have so many lovely colored beads and seads to make them and loads of pins both with and without tops… of course the ones without tops must have a flat top so the beads don’t come off… love your little birds… too cute…
    Hugs, JeanReplyCancel

    Thanks for the info. Love the angel wings.ReplyCancel

  • MaryFebruary 13, 2011 - 2:50 pm

    Love your pins, Becca. I have been trying to use crimp beads at the bottom of my “stack” of beads to keep them in place, but it doesn’t always hold them. I don’t see a crimp bead on yours. Do you use glue and if so, what kind?


  • lois skiathitisFebruary 13, 2011 - 2:53 pm

    You are the best, Becca! Thank You =)

    I had bought a Pretties Kit that Stampin Up sells but wasn’t sure about the pins. But after checking out your blog everyday, what a wonderful little element to step up the focal point on a card. Incidently, the first day I went to your blog I spent the next two days, enjoying all of them, from start to finish. BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Thank you so much. LOL KathleenReplyCancel

  • BernieFebruary 13, 2011 - 3:48 pm

    Amazing! I wish I could look at things and see the possibilities in them as you do. For years I have been sending people angel pins when they are ill, need encouragement, etc. I never thought to put them ON the cards I send with them. Always thought stick pins were dangerous but now that I know I can use an earring backing….
    Gosh I love coming here! Always inspired and I learn something new nearly every day. Thanks so much for sharing.
    It’s back to cleaning the craft room for me. Fingers crossed I’ll find some of those things I put in a place I knew I’d never forget.
    Have a blessed day.

  • ColoradoFebruary 13, 2011 - 3:56 pm

    Thanks, Becca. A while back I bought some beads and findings when Hobby Lobby had them half price and I just found out last week about looking in the floral section for pins with pearl tops… and now looking at your pretty stick pins I have to actually try making some. Hope to get to a floral section tomorrow to look for those pins and need to dig out the beads I bought and get busy.ReplyCancel

    You are just sooo clever, Becca! Now I’ll need to stop into the jewelry, wedding, trinkets and notions areas of the 3 stores I frequent when I’m able to. It’s really great to browse in HL, Jo’s, Mike’s, as you never know what small treasures you’ll find that will become huge thrills when someone receives a card!!! TSMFS!!!

    Amazing , oh my fingers right down to my toes are always so happy when I read your bolgs each day its always the first one I open and if one comes in while Im doing something the world stops .
    I love what you have done I knew there was a reason I brought all these pretty beads years back when they were sooo on sale I have a guys tool box that has 60 little boxs in it that I have filled with my little beads and nick nacks that I hung on the wall ( way cheaper to buy from the tool department then a craft store I paid under 10.00 for this and have had it for 9 years Oh my how the years fly by. ) the craft/tools stores should be reading your blogs to know what to order for their stores. TFS again another great day to be greatful for..ReplyCancel

  • Margaret ThompsonFebruary 13, 2011 - 5:55 pm

    A very interesting article on pins! How many of us card makers would have ever given it a thought to look for them in the floral, notions, jewelry and just plain miscellaneous departments in any craft type store.
    Thanks for the info, much appreciated.ReplyCancel

  • ChinnuFebruary 13, 2011 - 5:55 pm

    Oh, lovely, Becca! The angel wings on the stick pins are so pretty. Great idea! I just made 8 very girly Valentine cards for my girlfriends embellished with stick pins (crystal beds and pearls). They turned out very pretty (thanks to all the inspiration from your blog.) Do you use earring backs on the ends of your stick pins – if so, couldn’t the pin poke through? Thank you for this very very lovely Becca Bit!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy HandleyFebruary 13, 2011 - 6:18 pm

    Once again Becca – you never fail to inspire! To Debby Walters, pins can be sent through the mail – just stick an eraser in the end, but add a note that the eraser is a ‘gift’ and to remove it to enjoy the card. I usually tie the note to the pin with a ribbon.ReplyCancel

    Thanks Becca for clearing up the mystery of pins!
    I never thought to look in the wedding section for ‘corsage pins’, you are a genius.
    When using the pins, I put a drop of Glossy Accents to the point and stick it into a bead or two. I find that finishes off the pin quite nicely.

  • SoniaFebruary 14, 2011 - 6:57 am

    I love the pin! Thanks for the info on what types of things you pick up and where you get them from. I have found that I can get tunnel vision sometimes in the craft store depending on what I know I need and how much time I have (or don’t have) to shop that day. I actually can spend hours in a craft store (or book store) and do browse other areas of the store at times. Having you point out where to look helps as sometimes you are not sure where to start or when you see something new or different what it might be used for. It helps to get a fresh perspective on things. Re the blogaversary- I am grateful for people like you who are so willing to share your creativity and expertise with others.

    Thanks for the idea where to find stick pins. I found the Christmas note cards at Michael’s and used your inspiration for dolling then up. Gave them as gifts and everyone raved over them. My friends were going to use the tags for their special friends and family members. I am so blessed to have found your site. There is no one else like you!!!!ReplyCancel

    Love these pins! My mom always wore a guardian angel pin in her lapel. I try to do the same. What fun to have some different ones. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Becca, you even make the simple square look beautiful the way you wrap it so creatively with your ribbons and pins. Remarkable work! Mmmmmm.ReplyCancel

    am finally getting the chance to go back and catch up on some of your entries -these angel pins look great and thanks for the tip about putting an earing backing on the end- have been trying to think what to use so it’s not sharp for ages.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, The card is very well done. I like the saying very much; I like the pin idea very much too and I thank you for sharing their where-a-bouts. Even the ducks are very cute and Easter is coming upon us. When I read the card I smiled. I have the wind chimes and I consider them bells of another sort, lol, and the wind angels play them all the time to let me know more angels have gotten their wings. I also have a captain’s ship bell as my door bell and I think I am about the only one who rings it; very loud. Maybe the angels play it very softly. It sits on the right frame of the door. Thank you for sharing. Take care.ReplyCancel
