Pin Cushion for my decorative Pins!

Hi Crafters!

Shoe my second post for the day! I would like to share with you all a pin cushion I made.  I make a lot of Decorative Pins for embellishments for my cards. I needed a place to display some of them in my craft room.    

Well I really had fun making this project.  I could not wait to get to a charity shop and look for cups and saucers.  I Decopatch the cup and saucer with decorative paper I had in my stash.  I made a pincushion and glued it into the cup and decorated it all with lace and ribbon bows and flowers.  Glued the cup and saucer together, added some of the pins and wallah look what I have created!

I hope you all like it and will love a comment or two!! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop over!!!
Have a great day!!!
