Trinket Pin Ideas from Maya Road!!!

Trinket Pins by Maya Road hold a special place in my heart because they are a dimensional embellishment ( I love things that 'pop'), they add sparkle and that certain "something special" to all of your projects, and they are so affordable! Trinket Pins are different than any other paper craft embellishment out there!

And leave it to Maya Road to come up with so many useful designs for Trinket Pins - Gems, Crystals, Vintage Pearls, Flowers, Leaves (my fave;), Hearts, Stars, and coming soon - Christmas Trees!!! Thank you Maya Road...keep them coming because we can't get enough!

If you are like me, you love the Trinket Pins by Maya Road, but are unsure of how to incorporate them into all of your projects. Thankfully, Maya Road Design Team Member, Jennifer Beason, is chock full of ideas and has shared them in the Maya Road Newsletter.

All photos are courtesy of Jennifer Beason via the Maya Road Facebook Page/Newsletter. Check out Jennifer's Blog HERE for more inpsiration! Her designs will win your heart!

Jennifer's ideas for Trinket Pins include nesting a few behind flowers or ribbon, or sandwiching them between layers of chipboard so only the head of the pins show. Another "thinking outside the box" idea is to break off the heads of the pins and adhere them to your project by themselves. Just gently rock the head of the pin back and forth until is breaks off. I love how she used the Vintage Pearl Trinket Pin heads as an embellishment to her snowflake in the example at the right.

Jennifer has even found a creative way to store all of her Leaf Trinket Pins by reusing a Maya Road tin. The fabulous photo is below, but check out her full tutorial HERE courtesy of the Maya Road Design Team Blog! I would love to be this organized and creative!!!!

We carry all of the Maya Road Trinket Pins in our store and always anxiously await the release of new ones. We will be getting these two new CHA additions shortly...just in time for the holidays!!!

I am thinking of making a paper flower holiday wreath and using both of these new little beauties in it. What do you think???

  3. Very nice... I like to incorporate them into ribbon either as a way to attach the ribbon or as a way to pop by themselves or with the use of a tag.

  13. Love the pink pearl flowers, they are so cutsie and sparkly. Thanks for a chance to win. I know I would use them plainly on a ribbon.

  14. Wow, I really love these creations! I'm just starting at the whole scrapbooking experience, but I'm totally hooked. It seems great to use pins too.
    I absolutely love the leaves. But the hearts are lovely too. I would use that like an arrow through a heart, I think. And the christmas trees would be lovely as some kind of tab on a christmas card.
    That are all my ideas for now...

  21. I love trinket pins so much that I'm very stingy about using them. But when I do, I like to push them through ribbon knots, either one or two at a time - they look so elegant.

  23. I love these pins. I have been looking for a way to make something like the Sparkle Burst brads that were big several years ago and now I found it. I would make a page embelly and use a pop dot to array the pins. I would cover the pop dot with some large jewel or embelly! Thanks!

  28. I love using pins in my creations. The leaves are fantastic I can see so many uses for them....Maya Road does it again!

  29. My favourite Trinket pins would be the pink pearl flowers. You could even gather a bunch together, and make it look like a bouquet. Another way to use them is bend the pin a bit, and voila! a very 3-D embellishment.. great for doing trees, or a 3-D bouquet of flowers, or even flowers in a vase.

  30. Wow how could I pick just one? They are all so awesome!!! I do really like the leaves and I think that they would be prefect to accent a floral card.

  32. All of them are gorgeous! But my favorite are brown leaves. Awesome!

  33. My favorite Trinket Pins are the pink pearl flowers. I also love the red and the white ones. I'd use them as flower centers, and add to ribbons.

  34. The Crystal Stars are my favorites but I also like the leaves.
    They would be nice as 3D embellishments behind photos.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love adding them as accents to my flowers. I have actually only used them twice and my local craft store doesn't even carry them :( I linked your candy up on my blog. Hopefully my name is drawn! Thanks!

  36. I think I like the Leaf Trinket Pins best of all. Thanks so much for the inspiring ideas. I like adding pins to journalling cards to make them look 'pinned on' to the page.

  37. I used the turquoise leaves as a little addition to the mannequins from the Maya Road mini chipboard set...painted them purple twilight, pool and citrus and then embellished them with ribbons, a little flower, bling and the leaf on one. The pool paint is a pretty good match!
