And here they are! Colorful and brightly painted pins that we can wear so you can’t miss us when we show you to your new potential home. Because we are Tulip Real Estate, what better symbol than tulips? See below on how to make these guys…or use these tips to make a shape or image of your choice!
1.) First, go for a hunt at a ¥100 shop such as Daiso, Seria, Life, or your local 100 shop. You will need:
2.) Sketch out the shape or image of your choice, then you can confidently draw it onto the plastic card pin. Don’t worry about it being perfect because it will be covered in the front with fabric. Cut the shape on the plastic after you have drawn it.
3.) We decided that there will be a color break on the pin, so the bud of the tulip will be one color and the stem will be another. Place the fabric to make sure it fits your shape.
4.) Trace the shape onto the fabric, cut it, and now you are ready to glue!
5.) Glue the fabrics onto the front side of the plastic. Be sure to make sure it is flat and firmly sticking on. It shouldn’t take long at all to dry and then you can paint right ontop of the fabrics!
6.) Paint diluted with a bit of water give a great gradient and blending effect. Make sure to let them dry. These beautifully painted pins were ready just in time for our staff update meeting. Great timing!
We had a night out in Ikebukuro to a spot called Pump Craft Beer Bar and over some great food and beers, had to rock our pins. Be sure to let us know how yours turned out. Cheers!
