DIY: Mockingjay Pin

Hi
Katniss and Prim here
you know 
those two Everdeen sisters from district 12?

well, like, EVERYONE has been asking to borrow our mockingjay pin
we know how fashionable we are 
but guys we've only got the one
but never fear because 
hope is the only thing stronger than fear y'all so
we've created a simple tutorial for you guys to make your own

IMG_5150

find a photo of ours online
(p.s. there's lots as people love it so much)

IMG_5024

print it and carefully cut it out

IMG_5025

beautiful work there scissors

IMG_5053

trace around the mockingjay onto some kind of shiny gold paper

IMG_5088

we stole ours from the Capitol
shhhhhhh

IMG_5092

for cutting out this shape we used the end of an arrow 

IMG_5100

but if you don't happen to have one of those lying around 
(and seriously why wouldn't you)
we suggest a craft knife instead

IMG_5109

for the two circles on the pin 
you can draw around the bottom and then the top of a cup 

IMG_5113

one circle down
one to go

IMG_5121

boom
now you've got the perfect target-
Oi Katniss stop with all the arrow talk

IMG_5131

then cut around the outer circle
NOT with an arrow k?

IMG_5140

now time to add a safety pin
you can use a hot glue gun or tape
you know
whatever you fancy
no one really patrols district 12

IMG_5144

so that looks pretty hot
ouch burnt my leg again on it

IMG_5146

wear it with pride around your district

Ginny and Hermione

In the muggle world you commemorate today with the rhyme:
Remember, remember the fifth of November
gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot

But here in the wizarding world
