I'm so glad these are finally done!
The long ones are made with origami paper and will be made into pins- I haven't put the backs on yet.



My fave:


The cards are my favorite, they'll also be pins. I'm saving the colored "Joker" for myself.




The little squares will be magnets/pins. I used origami paper, but for a couple I used to Japanese instructions that came with the paper.



The circular bits are going to be pendants- I dremel'd holes in them, I just need to attach jump rings and the chain.




I'm so happy with how they all came out!

These look nice!  Quick question:  What did you use as the base for the round ones?

Gosh, I love what you did with the origami papers Smiley  Are the round ones made with poker chips?

Thanks! Grin

 Yup, the round ones are poker chips, and the longer ones were made by soldering glass slides together. People have done it with microscope slides, I used ones made just for jewelry making.
