    A friend gave me some for Christmas.....darling and I love them...They make a wonderful gift. She had gotten them at a craft faire. They look like squashed marbles on top of clear plastic push pins........I hung calendars with them.

    Thanks for the idea. Anyone have any pictures, I just can't quite see them. What glue would you use? I like the thought of sewing related pushpins. I have tons and tons of buttons.
