Bobby Pins created from Magazine Pages

DIY Paper Beaded Bobby Pins
These handcrafted paper bead bobby pins were created from magazine pages. There is a flirty orange geometric pattern, a purple marble-look pattern and a multi-colored brush stroke design. These colorful hair pins will add some fun and flair to your hair.

The paper bead is 2" long. It is varnished to help resist moisture. It can be used in wet hair and can be worn in the rain but it will not withstand being immersed in water. You apply the bobby pin to your hair the same way you would an unadorned hair pin. You can wear one, two at a time or all of them at once. It's up to you. Have fun with them!

If you love these prints, you can purchase this set of three bobbies at my Etsy store. I also have a tutorial on my blog with step by step directions on how to make your own.

    1. Hi Susan,
      Thanks for the info. I went in and added my email address to my blogger profile! Yay, can't wait to receive the Artchix Studio kit...I was just so excited when I learned that I was the winner that I forgot that the Artchix Prize was a kit.

      Thank you!!!
