Split pins: what are they good for?
Split pins are a gorgeous solution to fastening two or more layers of paper or card together.
Simply put your pieces of paper or card together. Pre-punch or cut a small hole, then pop the split pin through and fold the ends back, as shown here.
Not only are split pins functional, but they’re a great design feature too.
They come in a huge range of shapes, colours, sizes and styles to suit whatever project you’re working on.
Here we’ve shown how they can add a beautiful finishing touch to christening or baptism invitations.
However they’re also perfect for wedding, engagement, bridal shower or baby shower invitations; and they have so many uses in scrapbooking.
Here are some examples of how they can be used on wedding invitations.
