Here are your files:
I have supplied digital cutting files - and a .pdf because I don't want to neglect those of you crafting by hand. But - for this particular project digital cutting is the preferred option. You'll need a very steady hand as a paper cutter to hand-craft the paper pins.
Having said that, the pins are easy to make and assemble once you've cut them out. And you can really open and close the pins - just slide the point into the clasp.
You must used double-sided paper to make the pins because the clasp folds back on itself. I used 2-sided Supreme Pearlescent 125gsm. Just crease the folds, fold the clasp to the front, then to the back of the pin. Glue the tab down with tacky glue. You just wrap the clasp around the pin arms and glue down the folded tab.
The pic of the pin, below, is a simple pin without the charm loops. These come in very handy for new baby cards. I have included a variety of pin types and charms on the free downloads.
