I think these are so sweet. These thread spool papers were carefully salvaged from vintage spools. I love the graphics and knew I had to make these as soon as I saw them. I am thrilled with the result. I couldn't be more pleased. My wish is that these unique pins will bring joy to just that special someone who loves all things sew vintage.

As always at joonbeam, these are original recycled paper and, as such, are OOAK. I love it when I can save the environment and salvage a bit of character from the past.

This unique set of THREE 1.25" pinbacks was handmade by me and Tess, my tecre machine. What fun! My upcycled pinbacks are all made using original found paper ~ they are never copies. *Please note that the wear you see on the papers is character from their past lives now safely protected by a thin mylar covering.

These upcycled vintage thread paper pinbacks (badges) are taking a recycling detour right past the landfill and straight into your heart!

Spiff up your cap, tote bag, guitar strap, backpack or Sunday best with these charming pins.

Save Paper. Support recycling. Buy handmade. Enjoy life.

My pinback buttons, thumbtacks & magnets are mailed USPS first class incorporating clean recycled materials.

Please convo with any questions. I am always glad to hear from my etsy friends. And I want my customers to be happy.

Thank you for supporting my eco friendly art with heart.

Because environment is everything.
