Mini Gift Pin

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Lightweight and festive, these colorful coat pins make a treasured gift that will spread cheer year after year.


  1. Corrugated cardboard
  2. Holiday gift wrap or origami paper
  3. Tacky glue
  4. Miniature bows or ribbon
  5. Self-adhesive pinback


For each coat pin, cut out 2 or 3 small squares or rectangles from the corrugated cardboard. Our cutouts ranged from 1 1/2-inch squares to 3- by 1 1/2-inch rectangles.

Cover the cutouts with gift wrap or origami paper, gluing the edges in place. Now arrange the packages in a stack and stick them together with dabs of tacky glue. Add a miniature bow or ribbon.

Once the glue is dry, stick a self-adhesive pinback to the bottom of the stack.
