A couple months ago I saw the movie “The Hunger Games”. I enjoyed the movie and while digging around on the internet later I ran across pictures of the pin the main character wore. I thought it would be fun to try and make one using layers of paper to build it up. I used one of the pictures as the base and whipped up a pattern over the next couple days as a test.
In the meantime I happened to be in the local Wal-Mart and saw this special boxed edition of the movie that came with a pin and just had to buy it.
The pin that came with the movie was somewhat different than the picture I had based my first version on, so I had to make another one using a photo of my new pin as the base. The results are shown below.
All in all they both turned out well, and both have their appeal. I’ve glued small, strong magnets to the back to use them as fridge magnets. The pin itself has been brushed with a brush on super glue (CA glue) to strengthen it. They are surprisingly tough.
Both versions are available in the downloads section. Enjoy, and if you make one please send me a picture of it. I love to see my work being made by others.
