    The black backgrounds make the pieces pop! Corkboards are fine, but it feels like you took display to a higher level with those boxes.

    Tokiha (29 dias atrás) #55191450Omg Love this. I've been avoiding buying any HypMic goods cause I'd get sucked in but it's getting harder to do ;w;
    Also, not sure where you live, but I like to wait for sales from Michaela for their shadow box frames. It ends up being like $5 - $7 each frame and you can get them in varied colors :D


    aww man i don't think we have that store in the philippines :C
    thanks for the tip tho! and yes, be very very careful about falling into the Hypmic trap, they're not just taking our money, they're taking our impulse-control, too :)))

    This is so cool! I have so many badges and keychains that I just stuff in a drawer. These are great ways to showcase them :D

    Thanks for sharing!

    Shelia (29 dias atrás) #55117925This resonates with me so much!! I also used corkboards but yeah the upkeep is a hassle. These look great - are they shadow boxes? Would love to get them in white!

    Oh, yeah, I guess shadow box is the right term! I just keep calling them frames because that's what they were shelved with at the bookstore :P The smaller ones had hinges which made it easier to secure everything

    But the big ones are just regular deep frames with these metal tabs at the back

    which made it a hassle to secure once all the stuff is pinned on. There is a tutorial to fix that, but I haven't gotten around to it yet eheh ^^

    I also used foam board for the 'base' where I had to pin the keychains, since they only came provided with like cardboard or something. Foam boards come in white, too, but I find that black makes the designs stand out more.

    accidias (29 dias atrás) #55142205Using a magnetic board is really smart! Do the magnets stick to the back of the badges without fuss, or does it need extra adhesive?

    The neodymium magnets I got from a local dollar store are medium-sized like this

    Didn't have to use extra adhesive since the back of the pins are metal and I could 'flip' the safety pin attached to make space for the magnet.

    Just had a slight problem with badges that had this kind of backing though, since the pins are 'more secured' and protrude a little:

    Had to slip the magnets under the pin to get them to stick :) I do think having smaller-sized magnets would lessen the hassle.
